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 inbox!
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!
