Come to the Career Center Open House! January 29th!

Economic times are difficult and students, faculty and parents are wondering what the job market will hold. The future is uncertain with employers predicting an overall increase in hiring of only 1.3 % for spring 2009 graduates (National Association of Colleges and Employers: 11/12/08). The University Career Center realizes that we must be pro-active – students need the Career Center now, more than ever.
To showcase our services we are sponsoring an Open House on January 29, 2009 from 1 – 4 pm for all VCU students and faculty. We have invited employers to meet informally with students in our new Conference Room; our RamsRecruiting and InterviewStream systems will be demonstrated; information will be available on how to prepare for employment by participating in Experiential Learning Programs (Internships, Co-ops, volunteer work); and Career Counselors will be available for questions. Light refreshments will be served and there will be a guest appearance by Rodney Ram.
