Network with Employers and make an impression!

Hello Students,

Last Thursday, you should have received your October edition of Career Center Connection! Be sure to read through those newsletters for lots of important updates and resources that will help get you on your way to your dream job and internship.

As we are coming up quickly to our Thanksgiving break, be sure to take advantage of all of the employer-hosted opportunities that allows you to connect with recruiters and employers in a more personal way.

  1. Stand out among others by looking the part and dressing appropriately for the business and career you want to be in.
  2. Be sure to prepare some good questions beforehand to ask the employer.
  3. Make sure to have your resume on point in case there is an opportunity to share it.
  4. Send a followup thank you to the hosts after the session so that your name will be more most memorable for upcoming opportunities.

Check out these career-related opportunities to meet the employers!
