“Jump-Start Your Career” Forum

The Career Center will present its icon_leader, on Tuesday, January 22nd from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. in Montesi (Buckman 211).  We’ll introduce you to our new Director, Amy Ware, and give you an overview of our current services, as well as some of the new programs and initiatives that we have planned.  We’ll also give you a brief tutorial of our Nace-Link recruitment system, show you some of the new features that have been recently rolled out, and demonstrate how you can best utilize Nace-Link to assist you with your job/internship search.  Refreshments will be available.  Walk-ins are welcome, but we would ask you to RSVP through your Nace-Link account, so that we have a head-count for refreshments.  (Log-in, select the “events” tab, click this event and hit the “RSVP” button.)
