Major: Decision Sciences
I first connected with The Career Services Center when Career Counselor Susan Anderson came and spoke to one of my classes about the many job search services and resources they have to offer students. At the time, I had no idea how to start planning for my career. I didn't know where to begin or what kind of things to pursue, on or off-campus.
Over the last year, I have visited the Career Services Center about once a quarter. Through the process, I've gained new skills, met great contacts, and learned how to better communicate myself on paper and in interviews. The workshops and one-on-one visits have been extremely helpful, and just having someone to talk to about my career path has made all the difference.
One of my favorite experiences has been attending the quarterly career fairs, specifically designed for networking and job seeking. Knowing how to approach potential employers and when to follow up can be tough. The Career Services Center was a tremendous help, preparing me for the fairs and making me stronger and more confident in my abilities to communicate.
If it hadn't been for Career Services, my employment prospects would be dead in the water. Instead, I've had approximately five job interviews, most of which have taken place in The Career Services Center. One of those interviews led to an exciting internship at Physio-Control, a company I connected with at the Winter Career Fair.
It's an absolute must to know about the services provided by the CSC. The staff is friendly, welcoming and resourceful. They know so much about what's happening on campus and in the job market, and they bent over backwards to help me. If you're not really sure what you want to do, just ask! The Career Services Center will help you find solutions.
