Career Workshops and Events

Although our office is working remotely due to concerns about Covid-19, we look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming virtual career workshops. As a CHSS student, you can take advantage of the workshops and events that our College offers to those studying the humanities and social sciences. You can also attend campus-wide job fairs and career workshops that are offered to the entire community by the University’s central Center for Career Services.

Upcoming Webinars for CHSS Students

You can’t come to campus, so we’re bringing career development to you. Our Career Services team will host four Zoom webinars to keep your job search and interview skills sharp. The webinars listed below are open to all CHSS students:

Creative Job Searching for CHSS Majors
While there are many career paths that are compatible with the skills learned in the liberal arts, the job descriptions for such positions may not always indicate it. Therefore, an effective job search by a humanities or social sciences major requires creativity (and patience!). In this webinar, you will learn how to identify your strengths and skills as well as connect what you have learned in class to actual job opportunities. Various job search websites and resources will also be discussed. 6/29/2020

Your resume is not simply a summary of your skills and experience, but also a representation of you as a worker. In one page, your resume should convey a compelling story. Attend this webinar to learn more about how to tell your unique story and how it connects to skills needed in the job market. 7/29/2020
