iSCHOOL CAREER FAIR TIPS: RECAP

Welcome to the start of a new quarter, Huskies!

If you’re looking for an internship or full-time job, you don’t want to miss next week’s iSchool Career Fair (ICF) on April 9. Postponed due to the snow in February, we’ve extended the iSchool-only time to the first two hours (12:30 – 2:30pm). If you plan to attend during this portion, be sure to RSVP here by April 4.

We have nearly 40 organizations attending ICF to recruit INFO, MSIM, MLIS, and Ph.D. students for full-time, internship, directed fieldwork, and volunteer opportunities. You can see the full list of organizations attending here, and can anticipate an app refresh later this week with more details.

OPTIMIZING YOUR RESUME

If you’ve been applying to jobs or internships, you’ve probably heard about application tracking systems (ATS) — essentially, robots that do the first screen of applications that are submitted online. To better understand how to optimize resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn profiles for an ATS, check out Jobscan.

Jobscan’s mission is to empower students and job-seekers by building the best tools. Born out of co-founder James Hu’s own frustration with job hunting back in 2013, Jobscan was established to help job seekers successfully navigate the powerful applicant tracking systems used by companies to manage and filter out applicants. UW iSchool students can get 10 bonus scans when they sign up using www.jobscan.co/promo/uw-ischool.

TIPS FROM FELLOW STUDENTS

What better way to prepare for ICF than hear from students who’ve attended before? Below are some quick snippets from the ICF: What to Expect panel we hosted in February:

As you prepare for April 9, you can always revisit our tips at:

#1: Craft Your Introduction

#2: Develop Your Strategy

#3: Ask Good Questions

#4: Customize Your Resume

#5: Research Organizations In Advance 

#6: Follow Up With Key Contacts
