OSE and Career Center Collaboration Helps Prepare Seniors for Post-Graduation Success
The Office of Student Engagement and the Career Center have partnered this semester to offer a Snack and Learn Career Series for graduating seniors. This collaboration was created to help bolster senior class programming with an emphasis on professional development experiences for graduating students.
Kicking off last Wednesday with a session on "Results-Driven Resumes," the Senior Snack & Learn Career Series is a 6-part workshop series focusing on various career competencies and skills, including professional etiquette, networking skills and navigating your first job after graduation. Career Counselors will present on these topics, and provide help, tips and tricks that students can take with them into their professional careers. Attending students will have ample opportunities to ask questions and practice new skills, all while enjoying some delicious snacks.
The remaining five workshops will take place on select Wednesdays in the University Center. A full schedule of workshops, and their topics, is listed below and can also be found via Engage and the Senior Events page on the University’s website.
