Welcome to Syracuse University, class of 2018! We hope your transition to college has been fun, exciting, and full of new experiences so far. We know the term “career” may sound intimidating for some and it may be the last thing on your mind since you are just starting your college experience, but it doesn’t have to be. Essentially, exploring your future career starts now! The decisions you make, the experiences you gain, and the people you connect with during your time here will all impact the next step in your journey after college…and Career Services is here to help!
At Career Services we want to help you early in your career development, and that can start as soon as you want it to. If you are looking to discover more about yourself and your work style, explore options when choosing your academic major, build your first resume, or start your internship search, we encourage you to come visit us. We are also hosting the following events to help you explore your first-year career:
True Colors Workshop – Tuesday, Oct. 21 – 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. – 115 Hall of Languages *RSVP in OrangeLink required; must be present for entire session
- Why attend? True Colors is a FUN workshop that offers insight into your personality and communication style. Learning this early on in your career can help you understand the differences between others’ ways of communicating; ultimately leading to more meaningful professional and personal relationships. Great for working in teams, building leadership skills, and identifying preferred work environments.
Major Mixer & Panel Discussion – Tuesday, Oct. 28 – 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. – Career Services, 235 Schine *RSVP in OrangeLink appreciated as refreshments will be served
