Every week, the Office of Career Services sends out a “This
Week at Career Services” email to notify students of upcoming programs, workshops,
and deadlines, along with offering a brief spotlight on one of our resources. Also included is a list of a few of the jobs
and internships that were posted in JobCenter the week prior. The email serves as a constantly updated
snapshot of the services available to students; if it were to include
everything new and beneficial, it would be much too large for the average
This week’s blog is meant to call your attention to a
section of JobCenter that offers oodles of information on companies, internship,
research, or job opportunities, and graduate schools or unique
opportunities. This is only naming a few
of the 30+ folders in your Resource
Library – a constantly updated electronic filing system of countless
resources that should be added to your career planning tool box.
Did you know….
- The Employer folder offers over 35 sub-folders about
industries and/or companies? There is
information ranging from Accounting firms to GREEN jobs to state and federal government
opportunities and resources for candidates.
- There is an Internships / Research / Shadowing folder
that includes links to current and annual programs and opportunities at places
such as Pfizer, Disney, The Kennedy Center, etc. I stopped counting at 50 sub-folders, all of
which offer students great resources and ideas on identifying potential
opportunities of interest.
- A Unique Opportunities folder includes information on…you
guessed it, opportunities that are unique.
AmeriCorps/Vista, Peace Corps, and Teach for America; English Nanny & Governess School; a Leadership
Pennsylvania Summer Institute, and more can be found here.
These are just three of the folders found in the Resource Library, accessible through
the left hand navigation column in your JobCenter account. Take some time today to turn on your computer, settle in, and browse!
