Starting Strong

Welcome back iStudents! Whether this is your first year or you’re returning, you’re online or on campus, there’s a lot to think about as you get ready to begin the quarter, and a lot of ways you can and should begin to think about your career. The most important thing is: it’s not too soon to start! Fall recruiting is starting now; at this time of year many companies are beginning to look for interns and full-time hires that can start next summer. It’s ok if you don’t know yet what you want to do, but it IS time to start generating ideas and connections that will benefit your job search and employment prospects as you move through your academic program. I can help.

Take advantage of resources
Need additional help with your resume, introductory elevator pitch, figuring out what jobs and internships to apply to, or what to do about the job offer that you got from your summer internship? There are loads of resources available to help you. Log into iCareers for information on upcoming events, to submit your resume to the resume review resume book, to schedule an appointment with Janet, and to search for jobs and internships. Visit the main Career Center for workshops that can help you get started with recruiting. Workshops on resumes and cover letters, job search for international students, networking, and career fair prep, are all available to you in the main Career Center.

Make connections
As you get started in thinking about developing your career, take time to make connections with others in your program, your faculty, staff, and professionals that come to campus. Finding a great job or internship is all about networking, and making good connections with professionals will also help you figure out what you want to do professionally as you move forward. You’ll see plenty of opportunities to attend Employer Information Sessions through the iSchool and through the main Career Center, and these are great ways to learn about job opportunities and connect with employers. Look for these on the main iSchool calendar, or in iCareers, or on the Career Center events page. Don’t miss the fall career fairs, these are great ways to connect with employers and learn more about job opportunities as well.

Welcome back to campus, and welcome to a renewed start of your career path!
