Job Search Preparation
How to Find a Job: Finding a job may take many steps and involve just as many decisions. Be informed and check all the resources available. Be sure to discuss your progress with your career advisor.
Resume & References: Your resume serves as an introduction to an employer. The ultimate goal of the resume is to create an impression that an employer will want to set up an interview. It is a personal advertisement promoting yourself. There are many viewpoints on how to write the perfect resume, in Career Services we provide resume advice based on what the major of employers and career experts say they are expecting on a resume.
Letters: The two main letters are the cover letter and the thank you letter. Both are very important in selling yourself to the employer. The cover letter is a formal way to announce that you are applying to a position. The thank you letter should follow your interview within 48 hours.
Interviewing & Networking: Interviews can make people nervous, but with practice, a student can learn to ace an interview. The majority of jobs are found through networking.
Negotiations & Salaries: It's important to know the trends in your field so you can present a common salary range and benefits to the employer.
