Graduating from College this Spring?

TWO IMPORTANT WORDS FOR YOU: Career Services

Talking to second semester college seniors this spring, I have been floored by the number of them who have NOT taken advantage of the career services for which they and their parents are paying at their colleges and universities. The career service is one of the most important services at the college. Their services enable students to be job-ready in terms of resume, interview skills and attending on campus interviews set up by the colleges for them.

Contrary to popular belief, the career services offices are not just for seniors.

Last semester of college to-do list

Before a student graduates from college, there is an important to-do list to help the student have a smooth transition into a job or grad school. Among the things that college seniors need to take care of are:
  • many colleges require students to officially apply for graduation
  • students who have a student loan must complete loan exit counseling in order for their transcripts to be free for release to prospective employers
  • college placement offices offer job readiness workshops and resume services to help students with their job search and interviews
