The Office of Career Services has had a busy summer! In addition to revamping our website and transitioning to a new career system, WildcatLink, we’re excited to launch this brand-new career blog. Our staff and student peer ambassadors will be busy this semester blogging to keep you informed about all things career-related.
Remember the weekly Career Services newsletters you used to receive? We’ll be cutting back on the number of e-mails we send the entire student body in an effort to provide you with more specialized and pertinent information relevant to your particular career interests. In addition to sending all students one e-mail per month with general news and event announcements, we’ll be writing career-specific posts on this blog and e-mailing you monthly summaries of what’s new on the blog in these areas.
Of course, we need a way to know who is interested in what career fields. This is where you come in! We need you to log into WildcatLink and update your profile (go to Profile and then the Academic tab), indicating your career fields of interest: anything from Education to Banking and Finance to Environment and Agriculture. This is the only way you will receive these specific career announcements. Note that we will be using these e-mail lists not only to direct you to relevant blog posts, but also to notify you quickly of jobs, internships, fellowships and job-shadowing opportunities in your field(s) of interest. Whether you are a freshman, a senior or something in between, these updates will have something for you. Don’t delay in signing up for them!
Best wishes for a productive fall semester from all of us at Career Services. We’ll be in touch!
