October tends to be a busy month on a college campus. Classes are ramping up and the first round of exams are taking place. Our office is busy with on-campus interviewing and a variety of other events. Even if you don’t attend one of our events, remember that participating in other events around campus can be resume builders!
- We will be hosting another Resume Dr. event this month! If you are a senior graduating this semester, come visit us at Salute to Grads, October 6th, 11am-6pm, in the University Center Ballroom. We’ll be looking at resumes and answering questions about the all important job search.
- Are you a History, Political Science, or Public Policy & Administration major? Laura, our Internship Coordinator, is putting on a workshop on resume writing for those majors! The workshop is Tuesday, October 19th, 5:30pm, in University Center Room 266.
- Have you gotten involved in a student organization? Amp up your participation this month. Increased participation in the organization’s events and proceedings is an excellent way to display leadership on your resume. Homecoming (October 22-30) is a great opportunity to get involved!
- Are you starting that dreaded job search prior to graduating in December? It’s not so scary if you follow our job search strategies. October is a great month to get started with your job search. Starting now will give you something tangible to talk about when you go home for Thanksgiving in November.
