Are you hungry for career services? This fall’s events menu is sure to please!

You have probably noticed how our calendar of events seems to grow every week.  We have a pretty tasty line-up of events to get you ready for interactions with our employers:  networking events, interviewing workshops, resume building workshops and critiques…the works.  This fall’s career fair looks like it will top the charts in terms of employer participation (we are hoping for 100+).  In addition, if you are a dedicated blog follower, you see that there has not been a shortage of positions posted in hirebusrams.  Wow!  What a great time to be looking for a job!

Career Services is offering a well-balanced, healthy selection of activities for you to enjoy this fall.  Not clear about your choices?  These brief descriptions might help.

balanced meal

Employer Information Sessions:

An information session is a more formal opportunity to learn about a company, job opportunities and to network.  The sessions are typically an hour which includes a presentation and Q & A.

Coffee Breaks:

Coffee Breaks are hosted by an employer and gives you an opportunity to learn about the company, open positions and an opportunity to network in an informal setting.  They are normally held in the Atrium of Snead Hall.  Students and alumni are encouraged to bring their resumes to this event

Resume Workshops:

Learn the purpose of a resume, formatting tips, style, and “do’s and don’ts” are discussed by one of our employer guests.

Resume Express:

Our Resume Express program allows students and alumni to meet with employers for a resume critique in 15 minutes. Bring a hard copy of your resume and walk away with professional tips to improve it.

Mock Interviews & Interviewing Workshops:

A mock interview is designed to develop your behavioral interviewing skills through practical, “no-risk” interviewing. You’ll receive feedback on how well you interviewed, along with suggestions on how to further develop your skills.  We collaborate with representatives from several employers to participate in the Spring and Fall Mock Interview Programs. Typically, interviewers will conduct “behavioral-based interviews”, a technique used by employers to evaluate candidates’ experiences and behaviors in order to determine their potential for success.  Each interview is a full-hour with an employer!

Registration begins on Sept. 1st!

We also offer interview workshops and preparation sessions for upcoming career fairs and networking opportunities.

On-Campus Interviews:

Students and alumni can easily balance student life and job-hunting efforts by interviewing with potential employers right here on campus throughout the school year.   Sign-ups are through our Hirebusrams database.

Business Career Fair:

Our career fairs provide the opportunity to network with a host of employers to learn more about the companies and to apply for positions.

How to Work a Career Fair:

Need some additional tips to make sure that you are as prepared as possible for the fair?  The one hour informal workshop is hosted by one of our featured guests.

Etiquette Dinners:

Our etiquette dinners are hosted by a professional protocol expert who guides attendees through an evening of fine dining preceded by a ‘mocktail’ reception. You’ll learn how to navigate the evening with ease, from the proper placement of your name badge to making sure you don’t sip from your potential employer’s beverage glass.

I have included the latest calendar of events, which includes some of the co-sponsoring student organizations, and some of our employer guests.

Current business majors and alumni are welcome so I expect to see you all there.  Don’t blame me if some of these menu options are quite filling (and put a little weight on)!
