Career Consultants advise students throughout the career development process and assist them in developing and practicing effective career management skills. Students can make an appointment with a Career Consultant to discuss internship and job opportunities, get feedback on their resumes and/or cover letters, and receive assistance in preparing for interviews.
Each consultant works with specific academic departments, therefore, students should meet with the consultant assigned to their particular major. (See listing below to determine who your consultant is.)
There are two ways of making an appointment with your consultant:
GSR 110 is a required one-credit course and must be completed before students can take the GSR 300 Capstone course. This course is designed to help incoming and transfer students develop a resume, practice networking and interview skills and develop a plan that will lead to an internship to explore their career interests. Contact Anjali Desai-Margolin at email@example.com for more information.
The Career Library is the center of student activity for the Career Center. It contains a collection of career-related books, catalogs, directories, and other materials. The Career Library also has information on graduate schools and graduate school testing. The library houses computers which students can use to work on their resumes and cover letters and search for internships, on and off campus employment, and access other career related resources.
Students can also use the library or the Bison CareerLink (BCL) to make appointments with their Career Consultants, sign up for mock interviews, and find out about upcoming Career Center events.
Peer Career Advisers (PCAs) are on duty daily to assist students with making appointments and any questions they may have related to Career Center services. They also help students learn how to navigate the BCL system to search for internships and jobs and post their resumes and cover letters.
