Career Newsletter

Career News from the UW Career Center:

Please be aware that there has been a recent increase in employment-related scams being directed at the University of Washington community. Some are sent directly to UW email addresses (information gained through the Directory or other resources), and although we screen vigilantly for postings coming into our HuskyJobs system, two have recently appeared there.  While we have established even stricter review guidelines in response, scam employment postings are an unfortunate reality nationally as well as here at UW. As part of our ongoing commitment to keep our students educated, employed and safe, we’ve created a website devoted to Identifying Scam or Fraudulent Job Postings: HERE

CAREER TIPS

Find a job in December!

Welcome to the holiday season! December is historically one of the slowest months for hiring and job seeking, but you can use it to your advantage! This winter break, don’t quit looking, there are a lot of things you can be doing that will help with your job and internship search. Rather than write my own article about job search in December, this post by Lindsay Pollak is a fantastic summary of how you can do some very effective networking and relationship building to find a job around the holidays. Keep up your efforts, and use whatever down time you have after the quarter ends to your advantage! Happy job search, and happy holidays!
