On Monday, September 29th, at 7:30 P.M., the Center for Career Development and the Residence Life Office hosted Destination Unknown: Realizing the Potential for Your Future. The event was targeted at delivering information particularly important for Davidson seniors.
Center staff and student ambassadors provided information about the job and graduate school searches, resume improvement, cover letter writing, and social media polishing. Jamie Johnson, Associate Director for the Center for Career Development, answered questions and provided information about the graduate school search. She “felt it went very well and provided a foundation for other similar events to come in the future.”
Students could also take professional headshots for their LinkedIn accounts. If all of these useful resources weren’t enough, yummy hors d’oeuvres and mocktails were served. Ory Streeter, one of the Area Coordinators at RLO, worked as a bartender, requiring students to give a fact about responsible drinking in a professional setting before receiving a mocktail.
Seniors loved the event! Alexandra Clark ’15 said, “The experienced career counselors, both students and faculty, gave me really helpful advice and tips to prepare me for my career search and for life after Davidson. The Center for Career Development is an awesome resource for seniors and I look forward to going to more of their events.”
Seniors, don’t worry if you missed this event! Make an appointment with a staff member from the Center or stop by walk-in hours for Center staff or student ambassadors to see what you missed. You are always welcome!
