We invite all prospective and current Salukis, as well as alumni, to participate in our virtual Salukis Understand Careers: Continuing Education Summer Series (SUCCESS). This series focuses on building your career and professional development by providing three sections for you to participate in, CAREER, EMPLOY and INTERN. Each section has modules with thorough information pertaining to the section title. CAREER focuses on deciding a major that best fits your skills, abilities, interests and passion, and will help you to get to know yourself through career assessments. EMPLOY guides you through creating professional documents such as resumes and cover letters, and will assist you in preparing and conducting job searches and interviews. INTERN emphasizes the importance of internships, and will walk you through how to prepare and find them. It also covers our very own EXTERN program, and why you should take advantage of this amazing opportunity! You are free to participate in any module of your choosing, or you can participate in the full series and receive a reward at the end! If you are interested in this, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will send you a task list to complete for each section. SUCCESS is currently on our Youtube channel, which you can find here.
Though our physical office is closed due to the state mandate, the Career Development Center team is still here to serve you.
We do have an online chat function to connect with students and alumni! Feel free to ask us questions about resumes, cover letters, interviewing, student employment, the extern program, or any other Career Development and Student Employment relevant questions! We look forward to hearing from you!
