The University’s Career Services will host an open house Thursday, Sept. 6, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Thompson Student Union Room 1533.

“The campus community is invited to stop by our open house to learn about our programs and services, meet our staff, and enjoy some refreshments,” said Shelly Drouillard, director for the Center for Experiential Learning and Career Services.

“We especially encourage students to stop in for mini 10- to 15-minute drop-in sessions that will be offered throughout the open house on a variety of topics — career and major exploration; mock interviews; resumé, cover letter and LinkedIn profile reviews; and Rocket Jobs demos — where students can find on- and off-campus employment.”

Listed by date, additional events Career Services will hold include:

• Wednesday, Sept. 27 — Speed Networking from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Barnes & Noble University Bookstore at the Gateway.

• Monday, Oct. 2 — Make Your Pitch Perfect: 30 Seconds to Impress from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Horton International House.

• Thursday, Oct. 12 — Career Fair Tailgate from 2 to 5 p.m. in lot 6 by the Health Education Building on Main Campus.

Drouillard said she and her team are excited to showcase all the diverse ways they support career development learning initiatives as an Academic Affairs department and in collaboration with many University partners internally and externally. Career Services works to connect students to meaningful learning experiences and to assist students with major and career exploration.
