Grand Reunion Weekend Spotlight: Career Workshop and Coaching Sessions
Friday, Aug. 5, 2011
A piece of advice that is often shared by people who have been in the working world for a long time is, “You should always be looking.” Opportunities for employment and advancement may be missed if you are not poised to take advantage of them. Perhaps you are not sure of which channels to use in conducting your search, your resume is in dire need of some polishing, or you’re nervous about interviewing; all of these are potential roadblocks standing between you and the position or career of your dreams.
The staff at SCU’s Career Center would like to help you overcome those obstacles, and they have stepped up to provide valuable assistance to all interested alumni during Grand Reunion Weekend. On Friday morning, Anne Oja M.A. '01, assistant director and liaison to alumni and education & counseling psychology students, will lead a workshop titled, “Focusing Your Career Search.” This session promises to not only help attendees focus their job searches, but also assist them with evaluating their current strategies for maximum effectiveness. This workshop is being offered at no cost; we hope that it will pay off for those who are able to benefit from the useful information Anne will share.
Perhaps a workshop isn’t quite what you’re looking for, or you would like to augment the morning’s session with some specific, one-on-one coaching; the Career Center has got you covered there as well. From 1 to 4:30 p.m., 15-minute coaching sessions will be offered on a drop-in basis, also at no cost. Come armed with your resume, questions, or career goals and receive feedback from one of the capable counselors on staff. They are here to help, and they look forward to playing a part in making your Grand Reunion weekend an informative and fulfilling experience.
