  • Job Fair Tips from Our Graduate Intern: It all starts with Hello

    Hello, my name is Brian Holifield and I am the graduate intern this year for the Office of Career Services. It has been a pleasure meeting some of you last semester as you work on your career goals and I look forward to meeting more of you this semester!

    As the calendar quickly turns to the second month of 2010, the Office of Career Services has Career and Job Fairs coming up. Now is a perfect time to see me or one of the advisors to refresh your interviewing skills with a Mock Interview, stop in during our drop-in hours to have someone review your resume, or just schedule an appointment with us to discuss job searching skills or how to present yourself at a fair.

    Remember to be professional at ALL times when you are attending a fair and this does not mean just your appearance. You never know when an employer you just met will be passing by as you grab a snack at the vending machine, use the restroom, or chatting with a friend. Sometimes it is the smaller things that can turn a great chance for an interview in to you being moved to the bottom of the list.

    Below are the dates of our upcoming fairs and be on the lookout for some additional new and exciting workshop and programs we are developing this semester:
