Career Services will host a series of workshops throughout the fall semester to help students with their professional development. View them below:
Module 2: Crafting Your Pitch
Thursday, October 11 from 12:50–1:40 p.m. in Wishnick Hall, Room 113
A vital, and often overlooked, part of the job search is networking. Learn how to converse professionally with employers and contacts at career fairs and other networking opportunities. This workshop will help you learn what to say to employers to sell your skills, settle your nerves, and put you in the mindset of an employer.
Module 3: Designing Your Professional Profile
Thursday, October 18 from 12:50–1:40 p.m. in Wishnick Hall, Room 113
Presenting yourself in writing can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to catching the eye of potential employers. This workshop is designed to help you craft resumes and cover letters, while also thinking about your social media profile, especially LinkedIn.
Module 4: Finding Your Market
Thursday, October 25 from 12:50–1:40 p.m. in Wishnick Hall, Room 113
You’ve got your pitch down and your resume is pristine. Now what? This workshop will help you to efficiently research employers and determine who is worth your time and who isn’t.
Module 5: Building Your Network
Thursday, November 1 from 12:50–1:40 p.m. in Wishnick Hall, Room 113
You can’t start networking unless you know where and how to network. This workshop will give you the tools to connect with contacts and conduct informational interviews. Informational interviews 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. They can also lead to opportunities for the real deal down the road.
Module 6: Landing The Job
Thursday, November 8 from 12:50–1:40 p.m. in Wishnick Hall, Room 113
All your hard work has led to a full-fledged job interview. Join us to discuss strategies to prepare for the interview and negotiate salary after an offer has been made. This workshop will also provide an overview of typical U.S. benefits packages and how to weigh job offers beyond the base salary.
