Join us for our first Career Week!
We're focusing on what it takes to get you from college to career - and you can start thinking about that at ANY time, not just senior year!
Events kick off with Major Excitement (the Majors Expo) and end with the Fall Semester Job Fair. In between we've got lots of great activities geared towards students of any age or major - so check out the schedule below and join us! (Click the title of each activity for more information.)
Wednesday, October 4 - Major Excitement Majors Expo
Friday, October 6 – 2:00 pm – Hedgcock Atrium
Participate in this activity to learn what you should be wearing to an interview – or to the job fair on October 18! See you there!
Monday, October 9 – 4:30 pm – 2303 Hedgcock
If you haven't really thought about what you're going to do with your major, this workshop is for you! Participants will explore different avenues, as well as find out where they can do additional exploration on their own. Be sure to bring a laptop and an open mind! You can register for this Skillbuilder here.
Wednesday, October 11 – 3:00 PM – Jamrich 1318
Come by and ask questions of our panel of local alums, as they talk about their college careers and what they wish they had known in college and after.
Friday, October 13 – 12-1 – Jamrich First Floor Lobby (by JXJ 1100)
Drop in to chat with Career Services Assistant Director, Melissa Sprouse. Get your questions answered about anything career-related: internships, job search strategies, career exploration, LinkedIn, and more. We’ll have two drop-in coaching activities you can try out – play “Career Jenga” to get your mind thinking, or do our quick “Five Fantasy Lives” activity for some career exploration.
Monday, October 16 – 12:00 pm – Cadillac Room, UC
What do you do if you’re invited to an interview over lunch? What happens if you’re networking with people you don’t know over dinner? Do you know how to present yourself in the best way? If not – come have a FREE, 5-course lunch with us to learn all about proper dining etiquette.
Lunch is FREE, but you MUST pre-register, and seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Register by calling Career Services (227-2800) before Friday, October 13 at noon.
Do you know what to do for the job fair on Wednesday? What questions to ask recruiters? Whether you’re feeling lucky, prepared, or need some help – come ready to play Jeopardy and win some chocolate. Stay for a little while or the whole game – good luck!
