Help Redbirds achieve career success
First impressions matter
Illinois State students work hard. Because of their hard work in and outside of the classroom, they are well prepared and eager to start their careers and state their passion. However, students don’t always have access to the things they need to present themselves professionally when meeting an employer for the first time. To help them give the best first impression, the Career Center wants to provide College2Career Kits full of useful items that will help students do just that. With a professional pad folio, pen, lint roller, nail kit, sewing kit, shoeshine set, and a Career Resource Guide, students will have the tools they need to make a great first impression. Kits also include items like a Redbird travel cup and business card holder so graduates can share their Redbird pride when they land the job!
We need your help
We know our students need items in the College2Career Kits as they beginning the job search process. So we look for help from our alumni, staff, and friends to raise at least $3,000 to provide kits to 100 students who come to the Career Center for interview advice.
