A well-done job search is not unlike a well-done student/campus program. You wouldn’t implement a new initiative on campus without proper planning or including other people in the process. Yet, most people enter the job search and start applying without prior planning or making the right connections. It’s only October, but now is the time to start the job search planning process. This session will focus on the often-overlooked elements of the job search including: making connections to people (who, how, where, why?), strategies for researching positions and organizing a job search, reflecting on “for now” and longer-term goals, and creating an action plan around fill experience gaps over the next few months.
This series geared towards 2nd-year graduate students will provide a “jumpstart” to the job search process. Sessions will provide practical tips for job search readiness to help participants stand out among other candidates.
