Career Services: How It All Works

Date:  May 8, 2015
Time: 10:25-11:15 a.m.
Location: University Hall - 7th Floor

Register for the 6th Annual University Learning and Teaching Showcase

This session is one of many held during the 6th Annual University Learning and Teaching Showcase, organized by The Research Academy for University Learning.

Join us for an open conversation on how Career Services operate at Montclair State University.  We’ll focus on the idea of creating a career curriculum, culminating in a career course designed to provide the tools and techniques to solidify academic major choice, determine how major relates to careers and the fundamentals of an effective job search.  We’ll discuss how students might benefit from such a course and solicit feedback on what types of content should be included, even excluded, when offering a career course.

Come hear from the Center for Career Services on how to best leverage Linkedin.  Linkedin gives us unprecedented access to people, employers and opportunities.  This social media giant provides a professional platform for interacting with those in our field, ultimately expanding our contacts.  Employers benefit as well in that they're given a look at our virtual footprint, which is critical to maintaining a professional online presence.
