Beautiful New Beginnings for fall 2014

Hi Bloggers,

I have been thinking about how I wanted to share our new fall Calendar of Events with you.  I decided to call this post  “Beautiful new Beginnings” because that is what I think fall semester will be for all of us.

This semester, we begin our school year with a number of new things:

1. A ton of new job postings on hirebusrams

2. A new look for the business blog

3. A new career services website that will be launched in late August

4. New employers reaching out to the career center staff who want to network and hire you

5. A new “Success Stories” newsletter featuring 16 business majors and alumni who have found awesome internships and full-time position.  They will give you advice on how you can become the next success story.

6. Well, this one is a bit different, but I just have to share my good news!  There is another new family member in the Thompson household.  Please allow me to introduce the cutest little girl in the whole wide world, born just 5 short weeks ago!  Her name is Sheeba, our shepherd pup who is the apple of our eye!    My loyal bloggers know that I am absolutely CRAZY about dogs and cats so I am sure our newest Thompson should not be a surprise!

Sheeba as a pup

Calendar of Events Fall  7-24-14


Success for James! A Business Administration major who has had the most amazing summer internship!


If you had to guess the number one question career counselors are asked, what do you think it would be?  I will give you a minute to think about it.

Our number one question is,  “What can I do with my major?” or “What should I do with my major?”

Second question:   What is the business major of the students who ask that question the most?

If you guessed business administration and management, you would be right.  Students will say, “Oh, it is so BROAD, so I don’t know what I can or should do……”  It is a major (no pun intended) source of confusion for them.  Especially when they hear my answer.  My answer is, “You can do whatever you want to do with this major and with all of the amazing skills that you learn in the School of Business.”   You have to invest the time to explore your options.  Learn how to communicate your interests, skills and values to employers and then challenge yourself to try new business-related tasks.  Network, read tons of job descriptions and talk to professionals in the field.  Stop limiting yourself!

This is one of my favorite summer internship success stories because my student James NSH took that advice and ran with it!   First, I should say that James, a very quiet guy, is a career counselor’s dream because even if he did not know exactly what he was going to do with his major, he still studied hard, earning a very high GPA and he had several different types of work experiences on his resume.  His last position, at one of the major retailers, focused on sales.  The experience taught him a number of amazing skills and he achieved success with numerous promotions, but he was not sure if that was the career path that he wanted.  The retail giant wanted him to come back this summer, but James decided to challenge himself.

When we talked earlier in the summer, he told me that he wanted to learn new skills and be in a different environment so he can explore.  So, typical me, I gave him some homework assignments:  Study job descriptions on my blog, and hirebusrams so you can understand what employers are seeking, research companies, strengthen your resume and cover letter, practice your interviewing skills and get yourself out there.

I asked James to stay organized and send me a list of companies that he was researching.   In our meetings, we talked in great detail about this assignment and his results.   Soon, the interviews started coming in.

Please understand that success does not happen overnight, but that you need to be willing to put in the hard work to make employers notice you and if you don’t get the job, learn from that experience and MOVE ON!  Please don’t expect me to “find you the perfect job” without your commitment.

I want to share with you that James got one of the best summer offers on record!  On May 12, he was offered the position as the Global Supply Chain Department Intern at Amsted Rail/Brenco .

Let me share some feedback with you from his last two emails:  “The projects are awesome. I had a chance to contact suppliers, and handled some actual issues the company has and looked into them.  The managers are very good at providing guidance and there are a lot of helpful employees there.   I just gave my end of the summer, big presentation to the Chief Operations Officer, as well as Director of HR, Director of Supply Chain and my supervisor, the Supply Chain Manager.  It went pretty well! Overall it took 50 minutes with all the questions.  Also, I got to share my thoughts and opinions about things to improve which they seemed to enjoy”.

WOW! Is this the same shy James that I know? !   Can you imagine what this experience is going to do to his already impressive resume?

Bloggers, here is a news flash for you.  Supply Chain/Logistics is another area of management that is incredible!   I don’t if most of you even know what it is.  You need to explore your possibilities without being so short-sighted.  There is a whole world of opportunity right here for you to grab!  I just posted a list of 240 job titles from hirebusrams on my blog.  Have you gone through that list?

Please think about this post and when you see James back on campus this fall, give him a huge pat on the back for a job well done!

James, I have told you several times already, but I will say it again on my blog.  Your summer success, your positive attitude, and your willingness to keep trying and exploring has made me extremely proud!  Way to go!!!
