What to expect from Career Services this fall

What to expect from Career Services this fall

Recruiting events…alumni speakers…special workshops…we’ve got a busy semester ahead at Career Services! Whether you’re a first-year student just getting your bearings on campus, an upperclassman preparing to depart for “the real world,” or an alum twenty years out of school, Career Services has something to offer you this fall.

Take a look at our event schedule to learn about all the events taking place this fall. We have a number of new employers planning to attend our Career Fair at the Carrier Dome on October 5, including Aeropostale, American Junior Golf Association, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Everyday Health, and Hershey! Other employers attending are from the finance, retail, IT, marketing, healthcare, communications, non-profit and government industries (just to name a few). There really is something for everyone!

We also have more than 100 organizations signed up to attend the Local Internship Fair on September 21 — an awesome event if you’re looking for an internship in the Syracuse area!

Our Graduate & Professional School Day and Law School Day on September 21 and September 22 will give you opportunities to connect with representatives from top graduate school programs. These events offer you the chance to ask questions, collect information, and gain insight into potential graduate programs of study.

The Alumni Speaker Series will bring a bunch of notable alumni back to campus to share their career journeys. Women’s empowerment and motivational coach Gabrielle Bernstein ’01 headlines the series with her speech on Wednesday, October 19. Other alumni guests will include Jason Yaley ’05 MPA ’06, who works for the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as well as Mindy Stockfield, Vice President of Marketing and Digital Media at Hyperion. Stay tuned for more information on date/time/location of the speeches!

Career Services will also be going “on the road” once again, speaking about career development topics to numerous student organizations, fraternities and sororities, and residence hall floors throughout the semester. So far, we’re scheduled to give presentations to the National Association of Black Accountants, the National Association of Negro Business & Professional Women’s Club, Phi Beta Sigma, and students participating in the Transfer Success Series. If you’re interested in having us speak to your group or classroom about resume writing, interviewing, networking, social media, or a variety of other topics, get in touch with Dan Klamm!

As always, we will continue to meet with students and alumni on a daily basis. Not only will we help with resume critiques and interview practice, we can help you explore broader career questions and we can help you make decisions about your future — selecting majors, deciding what to do next summer, or switching careers. To get started working with a career counselor, just stop by our office during our 15 Minute Drop-In Hours (listed on the front page of our website) or give us a call (315-443-3616).

Let us know if you have any questions about this fall’s Career Services happenings. We look forward to seeing you this semester!
