It’s easy to feel overwhelmed at the beginning of the semester as you think of everything you will need to do for your classes, internship/work obligations, campus involvement, etc. Hopefully you have also marked off time for your career planning activities.
I don’t want my first post of the semester to be a listing of our upcoming Career Services programs, but I thought it might be helpful to let you know what to expect in terms of our different venues for communication and how you can access a few of the resources we often refer to.
We will be adding to our archive of Career Corner newsletters this semester with three new editions. Look for an email in February, March, and April; you can also access all of our newsletters in the Resource Library of your JOB CENTER account or on the left hand column of the blog.
Wednesdays will still be ‘Blog day’ with timely and informative topics. Our This Week in Career Services email will also continue to show up in your inbox every Monday with information on upcoming programs and deadlines.
In addition to the above methods of communication, don’t forget about the multitude of resources available to you on our Career Services webpage. From the homepage you can immediately access information about our services, key resources (JOB CENTER, Focus-2, Career Connections, GradSchools.com, What Can I Do with This Major, and The Big Guide to Living and Working Overseas), and links to our What’s Happening Page, Experience Counts internship information, and Resources for Students.
JOB CENTER is also a vast resource where jobs and internships are posted constantly, details and registration for our career events is available, the resource library is updated regularly, and each student can upload job search documents and update their own personal profile. You can also access Career Connections mentors to seek career advice from alumni volunteers and build your professional network.
I understand that the resources briefly discussed in this post may add to your already overwhelming first week on campus, but I assure you, if you make it a priority to do a little bit of work each week on your career plans, it will become a much more manageable endeavor.
Again, welcome back to LVC! The staff in Career Services looks forward to working with you this semester!
