Job searching isn’t what it used to be. In the past, candidates would search for positions online, apply, and then wait patiently to be contacted by the employer. Today the workplace is much more competitive and candidates need to be more pro-active than ever before.
To help students be successful and confident in their job search and build their employability skills, Career Services is hosting the Career Readiness Series. The series will be held virtually and students can attend any one or all of the sessions.
