If getting a job after college is not on your mind–perhaps it should be. We all know that the job market is tough, but there are some things you can do to put yourself ahead of the competition.  You don’t have to wait for your senior year to start thinking about your career.

The time is now to begin exploring career options, acquire valuable work and internship experiences, and prepare in other ways for your future. Career Services provides a variety of workshops, individual career guidance and counseling, help with resumes, interviewing and job search strategies, career fairs, and other networking opportunities. For students with disabilities, counselors at Career Services can help identify and focus on the many strengths you’ll bring into a workplace, helping you build your confidence as you prepare for interviews as well as help to navigate your questions about disclosing disabilities to prospective employers.
Below are some of the upcoming events with Career Services. Most events are held in Kerr Administrative Building Room (KAB) B008, unless otherwise noted.

  1. Thanks for some great information! Many people do not know where to look for help! Also, the economy is tough and you should begin the job search process before you graduate. Putting together a great resume is a good place to start!

  2. Agreed – the job market is tough, so it’s important to put yourself in a position to succeed.

    You’ve got to get noticed.

    At a minimum you should: attend job/career fairs and take advantage of the chance to network with people there – email everyone you know and let them know you’re looking for a job and ask for help – and post your resume online for specific jobs and for others to view.

    Keep at it and keep talking to people,

    Taylor
