The Write Stuff: How to Talk About Your Work & Life Experience on a Resume

Don’t underestimate the value of your own experience. Resumes are not just about your education and work history - they communicate your skills and abilities gained through many different types of experience. Finding the "write" way to talk about your skills can make the difference the next time you apply for a job.  Join us for this session to learn how to talk about yourself in work-ready language. Offered twice per month.

Interviewing Basics: Types of Interviews and Common Questions

Understanding how to promote your skills and accomplishments to potential employers during the interview process is essential to a successful job search. This session covers types of interviews, how to respond to frequently asked and difficult to answer questions, and other common interviewing challenges. Offered monthly.

Format: On-Demand Recording (45 minutes) available through Canvas: Career Services Workshop Resources

Finding the Right Fit Career: Using a Strengths-Based Approach in Your Career Decisions

If you have been looking for work for a while you may want to say "yes" to any new job. However, it is important that you don’t take this step lightly, since the "wrong fit" is the reason most often cited by employers and employees for why a new job didn't work out!  This session will help you to understand the importance of self-assessment and self-knowledge related to career planning. Offered twice per semester.

Work-Based Learning Orientation

Work Based Learning (WBL) is an opportunity to translate classroom theories into practical applications on the job, taken for academic credit. WBL is a paid experience facilitated by a faculty advisor that includes academic coursework. This session will cover the timelines and requirements associated with WBL. Offered as needed.
