The IIT Career Management Center is launching a new supplemental evening program to assist students in career readiness and their post-graduation job searches. Career Development Coach W. David Work (PS ‘13) will be regularly available at the Career Corner, located at a reserved table in the northeast corner of Galvin Library upper level in the library’s group collaboration area, to advise students on best practices for optimal post-graduation career placement. These sessions take place Tuesday and Thursday nights from 3:30-8 p.m.
Advising services include: résumé editing and proofreading; coaching on personal presentation and networking techniques; identifying viable career goals based on applicant background; targeted industry and position research; and informational resources available exclusively to IIT students and alumni.
IIT students and alumni are invited to either schedule an advisory appointment or meet David Work on a walk-in basis. Students are encouraged to make appointments via email at firstname.lastname@example.org; walk-ins will be met on a first-come, first-served basis.
