Welcome Back!

imageHappy New Year! We in the Center for Career Development are thrilled to have you back on campus and can’t wait to have the chance to chat with all of you about how you spent your summer and what you might like to try out next.

As we kick off the semester, we wanted to let you know about a few important initiatives and events taking place in the next few weeks:

Resume Approval: Hopefully you noticed the email we sent in August about the resume approval process required of all students interested in applying to jobs and internships in Crusader Connections. Simply stop by the Center for Career Development (Hogan 203) with a hard copy of your resume during drop-ins on Monday-Friday 1-4pm & Wednesday 10am-12pm, and we will help you polish your resume and get it approved.

Never created a resume before? No problem! Stop by the Center for Career Development to pick up a resume handout. This handout provides samples of past Crusaders’ resumes, so you can get a glimpse at how to describe the activities you participate in at Holy Cross.

New Workshop Schedule: This fall we’re offering workshops to help you write a resume, conduct an internship search and better utilize LinkedIn. For a full schedule of workshops, visit Crusader Connections online or on your mobile device by downloading the Careers by Symplicity app.

Summer Internship EXPO & Summer Research Symposium (Friday, September 11 @1-4pm in Hogan Ballroom): Browse their posters and speak with fellow Crusaders about the meaningful impact made this summer through their internship and research experience. Over 150 students will present on a wide range of industries including advertising, fashion, finance, human services, journalism, law, manufacturing, medicine, non-profit, public relations, research, social policy, technology and many more!

Finance, Accounting & Banking Intern Panel (Monday, September 14 @7pm in Hogan 320): This is a great opportunity to hear from fellow Crusaders about their internship experience in the corporate finance, accounting and banking industries. Panelists include- Dabness Atkins ’16 (PIMCO), Chelsea Brophy ’16 (Citizens Bank), Kati Goguen ’16 (GE), Maria Korchak ’16 (Deloitte), Scott Mongiardo ’16 (JP Morgan), Michael Ortlieb ’16 (EY).

Career Fair (Monday, September 21 @1-4pm in Hogan Ballroom): Stop by the Career Fair to connect with alumni and employers who want to hire HC students for jobs and internships. Most of the tables are represented by HC alumni, so it’s a great way to learn how to translate your liberal arts HC education to the working world.
