I hope everyone has had a good week! As I’m sure most of you know, the Career Fest is going on now leading up to Career next Tuesday September 27th. If you are looking to go to any Career Fest events or the Career Fair next week here are some things to keep in mind!
Take advantage of the Career Fest events! These are all set up to get students (all of us) better acquainted with companies and recruiters and closer to getting any kind of jobs you might want. Between the Resume Blitz, mock interviews, and events like Evening with Industry, there are significant opportunities throughout the next week before the Career Fair. I highly recommend utilizing things like the Resume Blitz and mock interviews because even if you aren’t looking for a job at Career Fair, it’ll help hone skills that will be useful down the road. If you are looking to get a job from Career Fair, it is very useful to do some research into what companies you might be interested in talking to and making a plan of attack before you get there. Think you might need help creating this kind of plan of attack? There are people for that! I’m always available to help out, otherwise Career Services offers mentors and helpers that could help out with that!
In addition to Career Fest, there’s some events coming up around campus to get involved for fun and also to make sure everyone has the best semester possible. One of these events is the Student Success Summit called P3: People, Purpose, Passion. It’s a one day leadership and success summit meant to help with things varying from how sleep schedules impact success and leadership roles. If you are interested in registering for that, it is on October 8th from 9 am – 4 pm. Here is the link!
As per usual, I have my office hours every week and you can always send me an email if you need help with anything!
