Got the Job Offer? Now What? Workshop
Where: Perlstein Hall, Room 108
: If you have a job offer: congratulations. In your excitement, you may be tempted to accept the job on the spot. The way you accept a job will set the tone for your career, so it is important to take the time to go over all of the details first. There are many components to compensation packages beyond the salary, like hours, healthcare plans, retirement packages, vacation time, and more. It can be overwhelming, especially if it is your first job. This workshop will present information on accepting a job and understanding the different kinds of benefits, including perks and red flags.

Thursday, October 1, 2015
4:30-5:30 p.m. 
Informational Interviews Workshop
Where: Siegel Hall, Room 202
Description: An informational interview can give you a feel for what a career or company is like by learning from an employee’s daily activities, without the pressure so often present in a typical job interview. Career Services’ Informational Interviews workshop will cover how to ask for an informational interview, how to prepare, what questions to ask, and what you should do after the interview. An informational interview is one of the most valuable methods of gaining industry knowledge that is often overlooked. Join this workshop to learn more.

Friday, October 2, 2015
12:50-1:40 p.m. 
Interviewing with Confidence Workshop
Where: Perlstein Hall, Room 109
Description: Do you have an interview coming up? Have you had an interview that didn’t go well? Make sure you are well prepared to conquer your interview. Attend this workshop to find out the answers to questions like, “what are questions you are guaranteed to be asked?”, “what are taboo topics for a job interview?”, “how long should your answers be?”, “what are some great questions to ask your interviewer?”, and more. Research shows that interviewers reach final decisions about applicants only four minutes after meeting them. Will you make a good first impression?
