“Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge, wish for more wisdom.” – Jim Rohn, world renowned personal development expert
Landing that ideal position in the career of their choice is the goal of most students getting ready to graduate. However, competing in the marketplace with other qualified job applicants can be a challenge.
To help students prepare to compete in the job market Newman University Career Services this spring will be offering a series of workshops called Career Skills 101.
Director of Career Services and Cooperative Education Coordinator Melody Head has developed the sessions as informal meetings where students are welcomed to join as many and as often as they want.
“We’ll go over information regarding a certain skill and then allow plenty of time for addressing specific questions a student might have about the topic,” Head said. “Even if a session has already started I’d encourage students to join us.”
Each topic in Career Skills 101 will be offered at various times to accommodate student schedules.
“Our goal is to be an important asset to our Newman University students and our alumni. We really want them to know we’re here to help them in their career planning and decisions,” Head said.
Career Services provides Newman University students and alumni with a variety of resources for career planning and professional development.
The topics that will be covered in various Career Skills 101 sessions include internships and cooperative education, self-assessments, soft skills, resume and cover letters, networking, interviewing, dress for success and job search strategies.
