This Week at Career Services (TWACS) arrives in your e-mail inbox every Monday. What are you doing with those messages?
· I open and read them. At first I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but now I have a good idea of what Career Services does and am amazed at all the helpful resources available. TWACS points out a new resources each week, directs me to the weekly Career Services Blog that reads like a conversation I might have if I was talking to a member of the staff, and keeps me current on career programs as well as jobs/internships posted in my JobCenter account. I need a little advice from time to time and certainly need help keeping myself organized.
I read something about Project CLOSE-UP, a program just for freshmen, on the Career Services website. And, I want to find out more about JobCenter and see if it is OK for freshmen to go to some of the career fairs they advertise.
Career Services responds: Excellent! Drop by and introduce yourself when you are in the Mund College Center. We’d be happy to answer your questions and show you how to get the most from JobCenter. In fact, you can get started learning about it right now. That’s why we created the Job Center Tutorial for Students, a crash course tour that introduces the resource’s many features and tools.
· I simply delete them.
Career Services responds: You might want to reconsider.
Get in the habit of using JobCenter and regularly reading This Week at career Services and the Career Services Blog for tips, ideas, leads, and opportunities. It’s like having your own personal career coach!
