I scheduled a counselor appointment, attended a Mock Interview, participated in the Career, Internship and Graduate Fair, and took part in the Dress for Success Fashion Show.
I was still uncertain about what path of marketing I wanted to pursue for my career. However, when meeting with a counselor at the Career Center, she encouraged me to keep all of my options open when searching for a post-grad job. I don’t think that I would have even considered my current job because I was so stuck on working in communications and PR. By broadening the scope of the different marketing sectors that I was willing to work in, I found the perfect post-grad position.
The Career Center emphasized the importance of having a professional and informative LinkedIn profile. I followed their advice and was contacted via LinkedIn by a corporate recruiter for a full-time post-grad position in my field of study, which I received and accepted an offer from. I don’t think I would not have had this opportunity if I didn’t follow the Career Center’s advice.
