2012 Senior Saturday Featuring Brad Karsh

2/15/2012  2:15 pm

You can NEVER be too prepared for the job market. Especially now, when you will have to work harder to get a job. You just need to show why you should be hired over others. You need a competitive advantage. You need to stand out. You need to look better on paper than every other applicant. You need more than just a strong portfolio. 

That's why you should attend the College of Media Senior Saturday Career Seminar, February 25, 2012. 

Senior Saturday gives you advice you won't get anywhere else and gives you the chance to talk with professionals -- one-on-one -- who really care about helping you. 

This is not a job fair. This is not your typical career advice. This is specially designed for journalism, advertising, and media and cinema studies students. By attending this seminar, you will be ready to successfully jumpstart your career.

Featured Speaker: Brad Karsh is the President and Founder of JobBound, a company dedicated to helping students prepare for the job search and life after college. An industry expert on breaking into the job market, Karsh is the author of "Confessions of a Recruiting Director: The Insider’s Guide to LandingYour First Job." Brad has been featured on CNN’s Paula Zahn Now, CNN Headline News, CNBC, and he has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, and many others. 

Brad Karsh will be here to share two presentations:

"The Insider Secrets To Interviewing Success" and "What They Don't Teach You in College: Business Etiquette Tips for the Real World" 

Professionals, including alumni of the College, will participate on informative panels and share what their industries are like and how to land a job. There will be a networking session for you to meet those who have successful careers. This is the PERFECT time to get one-on-one advice from top professionals in YOUR industry.
