Resources To Help Your Student Succeed
Click to expand
Employers and graduate schools expect to see lots of experience on a student's resume. Options for involvement are plentiful and if a student is uncertain about what to pursue, they may speak to their Career Counselor.
Students can explore career interests through volunteering and through an internship. Being actively involved in multiple ways develops marketable skills for both jobs and graduate school and diversifies a student's experiences.
Students are encouraged to visit the Career Exploration Office to determine a wise choice for their college major. Once a major is selected, students should seek assistance from their Career Counselor to explore internships, job opportunities, graduate schools, if interested, and to prepare a resume and cover letters.
Career Development Center staff advise students tap into the hidden internship and job market. Students can check out AppStates LinkedIn page to expand their list of career contacts. Ask faculty members and Career Counselors for leads. Attend career fairs and other career events. Students should consider doing informational interviews to talk to professionals who have jobs that interest them.
Utilizing career events on campus will expand students reach into internship and job opportunities.
Students can shape their experiences to highlight their unique interests, skills, and competencies by trying one or all three of these.
