A little "Soul" is coming to the SUccess in the City series!

By Kim Brown, Assistant Director, Alumni Programs

It’s hard to believe that four SUccess in the City networking events are already in the books for the 2013 SITC season…with five more on the horizon! SUccess in the City events give our new graduates the opportunity to meet established alumni in nine different cities across the US: Syracuse, Philadelphia, DC, Boston, NYC, Atlanta, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. We are proud to partner with the Office of Alumni Relations and alumni clubs in each city to make them happen!

Alumni Andrew Laver, Rob Long and Jenny Sacks at SITC Philadelphia!

We kicked off the series at Eric Mower and Associates in Syracuse’s Armory Square. Eric is an SU alumnus, and we were thrilled to hold the event at a company owned by one of our own. Attendees heard 2012 grad Alison Neufang’s fantastic success story and enjoyed a great night of Orange networking. The series continued on a gorgeous night in Philadelphia, where we shared all of the recent changes to LinkedIn and how our students and alumni can take advantage of the Orange networking opportunities that are abundant within that platform. It was a wonderful evening – and we had difficulty clearing the room as the night ended!

#SITCDC – put on by SU’s Greenberg House – and #SITCBoston were also excellent events. In every city except for NYC (where our alumni population is so huge), we encourage current students to attend SUccess in the City. It’s always amazing to watch our up-and-coming Orange alumni make connections with our established grads. Smart networking starts early on in your college career!

Gabby Etrog Cohen, VPA '02, will speak at #SITCNYC

Speaking of NYC, that’s our next event…and we’re THRILLED that Gabrielle Etrog Cohen will be our featured speaker at #SITCNYC. Here’s where the SOUL part of the blog post comes in. Gabby is a 2002 VPA alumna and is the PR and Marketing Director at SoulCycle – arguably the HOTTEST workout on the market these days. Gabby has an incredible career story to share, including the fact that she was recruited for her current position thanks to LinkedIn! We hope you’ll consider joining #SITCNYC on June 27th. Click here to register and here to learn more about Gabby before attending the event.

And remember…if you call Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, or San Francisco home, then we’ll be making a stop in your city this summer! You’ll find all the details here. Hope to see you at a SITC near you!

 

 

Spring Break: use it to spring ahead on your job search!

By Kim Brown, Career Services’ Assistant Director, Alumni Programs

Spring Break has arrived! While we’d all love to escape to sandy beaches and sunshine, this week is actually the perfect time to take some significant steps ahead when it comes to your career. Here are a few ways to do that!

Informational Interviews (but you don’t need to call them that…)
Use this week to be productive! Hopefully you’re familiar with LinkedIn and our ‘CuseConnect group. In that group, you can reach out to alumni who, by joining the group, have indicated that they are willing to help you with job search questions and career advice. Identify some alumni you’d like to learn from and don’t hesitate to reach out to them with questions. You can even arrange to meet for a cup of coffee or a brief meeting at their offices during Spring Break.

You may hear these meetings referred to as “informational interviews.” Personally, I’m not a fan of that term. Consider them friendly chats! They offer you a chance to get to know our alumni and the various career paths they’ve followed. Ask questions about how they got where they are today. It can feel a bit intimidating, but just know that your alumni love SU as much as you do and will very likely be willing to help. Remember, too, that these chats don’t NEED to be limited to SU alumni. Meet with friends of your parents, former internship supervisors, etc. The more people you know, the better off you’ll be when it comes to landing your internship or job.

For some advice about the best ways to connect with alumni on LinkedIn, check out this fantastic blog post by Lindsey Pollak.

BigEastHave you heard about the Big East Career Fair?

Why #stayinCNY?

By Shannon Feeney and Kim Brown

Next week, Career Services will host our very first Downtown Tour, introducing a group of 20 undergraduate students to what it’s like to call Central New York (CNY) home. We still have a few spots left for this very exciting opportunity! On the fence about signing up? Don’t be! Stop by Career Services today to secure your spot for April 13th. Here’s why.

Our Downtown Tour will begin with a ride to Armory Square on the Connective Corridor bus. You’ll get to tour and visit some of Syracuse’s top employers: O’Brien & Gere, KS&R, and Eric Mower and Associates.  You’ll hear about job opportunities in Syracuse from alumni who chose to stay here after graduation and will discuss all of the exciting ways that CNY is growing.  In addition, you’ll enjoy a delicious, free lunch at Lemon Grass, one of Armory Square’s most upscale restaurants. The day will wrap up with a visit to the Tech Garden to hear about all of the affordable (and really nice!) housing options in Syracuse, as well as all of the great festivals our city is known for, from the Downtown Committee.

So why do people choose to #stayinCNY? We thought we’d pose the question on Twitter, to drum up some excitement about our Downtown Tour. While the hashtag (and title of our blog post) is short, the list of responses we got to our question was very, VERY long!

We (Shannon and Kim) are both SU grads who didn’t grow up here, but chose to make Central New York our home after graduation. We both had huge smiles on our faces as we saw the responses pour in, many of them with similar reasons to the ones that kept us here! CNY Central’s Michael Benny even turned #stayinCNY into a news story! Thanks Michael!

Here is just a sample of the tweets that came in, but there are many, many more – so be sure to click on #stayinCNY to see them all!

@erobinso4444: My family and friends are still here, I love the area, and there are lots of things to do within 1 hr of the city #stayinCNY

@nwenderlich: I chose to #stayinCNY b/c I was embraced by the community and felt I could make a positive change. Syracuse has become my home.

@amandaseef: I left for 2 yrs and came back to #stayinCNY. Best decision of my life. Good mix of rural and city, tight communities. Love it!

@erintochelli: I chose to #stayinCNY b/c of all the places and things here! Armory, SU, Greek Fest, Beak & Skiff, Jazz Fest, Zoo, NYS Fair, Beaver Lake etc

@bsio: I choose to #stayinCNY because I can have a direct impact on making the region great

@jamierwhite: I chose to #stayinCNY bc we can customize/share our experiences, and unlimited potential of the area

@danklamm: I chose to #stayinCNY for the career opportunities, sense of community, and low cost of living. By deciding to #stayinCNY, I was able to pay off undergrad loans quickly and get out of debt, giving me more mobility later.

@michaelbenny: After 12 yrs it is home! I think it decided 4 me. Great job, great life.#stayinCNY I recall thinking I’d be here 2 years!!

@kristysmorol: I #stayinCNY because you can find almost anything here. you may have to search for it, but it’s always there

@syrarts: Where else could we find the huge range of affordable arts & cultural activities that we’ve got here? #stayinCNY

@gregmunno: Why I #stayinCNY: Diversity, access, people. Everson to Green Lakes, SU to Skaneateles, Armory to Ithaca. It’s all here for the taking.

@lpavlus8: I choose to #stayinCNY bc of the beautiful fall foliage, the affordability & the opps to make noticeable changes in the community.

Students: we hope you’ll consider joining our Downtown Tour on April 13th after reading through those and all of the other great responses. Remember, space is limited for the event, so be sure to stop by Career Services ASAP to sign up!

Happy birthday to 'CuseConnect! Are YOU connected?

By Kim Brown, Alumni Programs Coordinator

We have a lot to cheer about these days! Our basketball team’s winning, this summer-like weather has the Quad PACKED, and…‘CuseConnect is now seven months old!

What’s ‘CuseConnect? It’s the LinkedIn group that Career Services launched on August 19th, 2011 to connect SU students with SU alumni, as well as alumni with fellow alumni, for career advice and job/internship opportunities. In the past seven months, we’ve grown to nearly 2,700 student and alumni members! Are YOU one of them?

Students do need to attend an orientation here in Career Services before your request to join will be accepted. You can sign up for an orientation in OrangeLink (accessed through MySlice). If the times don’t work for you, just give our office a call at 315-443-3616 to set up an orientation with me (Kim Brown) at a time that’s convenient for you.

Alumni are accepted to the group as soon as we see your requests to join. Joining the group says that you’re willing to be contacted (via LinkedIn messages) by students and fellow alumni as they explore different careers, opportunities at your companies, advice on what it’s like to live and work in certain cities, and more. It’s a phenomenal way to “give back.” I can’t tell you how many students have e-mailed me to say what great connections they’ve made or have stopped by my office with bright eyes to share the story of a great informational interview they had with an SU grad they found in ‘CuseConnect. THANK YOU to our alumni who’ve already come on board!

Courtesy: LinkedIn

The top industries represented in ‘CuseConnect (but our group certainly isn’t limited to these!) are:

  • Marketing and Advertising
  • Information Technology and Services
  • Public Relations and Communications
  • Financial Services
  • Higher Education
  • Law Practice

What you’ll find inside the group is a vibrant discussion board filled with all kinds of career-related topics. Under the “Jobs” tab, click on “Job Discussions” to find (and post!) job and internship opportunities for our ORANGE family.

If you’re on Twitter, we’re also using #HireOrange when we post jobs/internships from SU alumni specifically for SU students and fellow alumni. Be sure to check it out!

Do you have a SUccess story to share as a member of ‘CuseConnect? Have suggestions on how we can make the group more useful? Please let us know by leaving a comment below!

Senior Session Recap: Social Media Networking

By Lauren Wannermeyer, Career Services Intern

Dan Klamm and Kim Brown presented a very informative session on Social Media Networking for the last Senior Session on Wednesday, 2/22.

Did you know that 75% of employers search online for job candidates? That’s huge! A little known fact is that social media profiles are generally the top results when you search someone’s name online. If you are on any social networks, employers will be able to find them (try it out for yourself!). Kim went on to explain how you can use that to your advantage. It has been said that “If you’re not on LinkedIn, you do not exist professionally.” When used correctly, LinkedIn can be one of the first results that comes up in a search for your name. Be sure to make your LinkedIn the best possible representation of you and customize your URL to contain your name.

Use 'CuseConnect to network with alumni!

Once you’re all set up on LinkedIn, it can be a powerful tool (even without paying for a professional account). You can use it to find Syracuse University alumni who work at companies you like and even connect to someone you might not otherwise and apply for positions. The trick is to join groups and follow companies to get to know individuals in your future field. Start with the Syracuse University Alumni Network group (yes, you can join if you’re a current student) and check out ‘CuseConnect on the Career Services website to see if you’re interested in joining. After a short orientation, you can get all set up to connect with alumni who are looking to help you out. If you want more help setting up LinkedIn and learning how to use it, don’t hesitate to stop by Career Services drop-ins!

Dan went on to talk about how Twitter can help you connect to potential employers. Dan said that “The benefit of Twitter is that there are no walls.” You can reply to anyone, even if they’re not following you and they will see it and more than likely respond. The caveat is that you have to keep your account public if you want to use Twitter for networking purposes. You can connect to people that you might not otherwise have any other way of connecting with. A great way to do this is by participating in a Twitter chat. There are multiple ones held regularly. All different kinds of people attend. If you find one with a topic that interests you, you can connect with other like-minded people and possibly make connections that could one day land you a job. You wouldn’t be able to successfully accomplish this if your account is private because then people would not even be able to see your replies unless you’ve allowed them to follow you. There is much more to learn about Twitter, but try it out and get connected to the millions of people already tweeting!

Social networks get a bad reputation when people use them inappropriately. Representing yourself well on social networks can make all the difference in your job search. It can help employers get an idea about what kind of person you are before even meeting you. Be sure to keep this in mind as you’re using social networks for recreation purposes!

Don’t forget – TOMORROW, February 29, Career Services and the Office of Multicultural Affairs are hosting ‘Diversity: A Dinner & Dialogue.’  Take this opportunity to engage in lively discussion about diversity in the workplace, connect with employers, and eat some delicious dinner!  STUDENTS MUST RSVP ON ORANGELINK.

Network with SU alumni! Check out our Spring 2012 Alumni Speaker Series

By Kim Brown

I am SO excited about this semester’s line-up for the Alumni Speaker Series. Along with the Office of Alumni Relations, Career Services invites successful SU alumni to share their career stories with you and to offer you some incredible connections in the fields you’re interested in after you leave SU. After a fantastic fall, we are getting ready to kick off our spring edition of the Series. Our first event is Friday, January 27th! These events are free and open to all.

Next Friday, we’ll welcome Marco Forte, ’95 and Mitch Messinger, ’92 G ’93.

Marco Forte studied Consumer Studies, when it was a major in the college we now know as Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics. He’s now Vice President of Primetime Sales for ABC Television, handling national advertisers such as Apple, McDonald’s, J.C. Penney, Visa and PepsiCo.

Mitch Messinger is Publicity Director for ABC Daytime and Soapnet, overseeing national publicity campaigns including those for the multi-Emmy Award-winning drama “General Hospital.” Mitch’s undergrad major was in American Studies, then he went on to receive his Master’s Degree in TRF from Newhouse. Mitch bleeds orange; in fact, he was an Otto when he was a student here!

Meet Marco and Mitch at 1:30 p.m., January 27th, in Newhouse 3’s Hergenhan Auditorium. They will share their stories, offer advice for those of you seeking similar career paths, then leave plenty of time for Q-and-A. After the event, join us for an hors d’oeuvres reception in the lobby and a chance to network with Marco and Mitch one-on-one.

As for the rest of the Series, here’s who we have on tap!

Career Services in Los Angeles: Check out who we met!

By Kim Brown

If you follow us on Twitter, you know that several of us from the @CareerSU team were out in Los Angeles last week, working to make some awesome connections with employers and Syracuse University alumni.

Sue Casson (@smcasson), our Associate Director of Employer Relations and Shannon Feeney (@orange_spice), our Employer Relations Coordinator were on the trip – and I went along too!

Our Employer Relations team is really working hard to connect you with the employers you’ve told us you’d like to see on campus.

A fun intersection at Disney in LA!

We visited several employers in LA, including Activision Blizzard, Disney, Pelican Products, Mattel, Creative Artists Agency, Guitar Center, Robinson Helicopter, and more.

We also stopped in at Nickelodeon Animation and are VERY excited to announce that, for the first time ever, @NickAnimation will be recruiting at SU. Don’t miss them when they visit for our Career Fair in February!

Visiting the new SU in LA campus was a real treat. 41 students are studying out there, with 41 amazing internships! I was able to teach them some of them the ins and outs of LinkedIn, which was certainly a lot of fun. Now they have the tools they need to turn those internships into full-time jobs, which Andrew Graham also gave us some great advice on in this earlier blog post!

A highlight of our trip was being able to see a taping of Leno, thanks to SU grad Matt Curran, who works for NBC Universal as Director of Talent Relations and Community and Corporate Affairs. If there’s one thing we confirmed on this trip, it’s that Syracuse University alumni have the most amazing jobs – and are so willing to help our students get to where they are, offering great advice along the way. The SU network is second to none.

Check out some of the videos we shot in Los Angeles for our Career Services YouTube Channel. We’ve posted several new ones! Look for:

Stacy Small, Newhouse 1991, Owner of Elite Travel International

Linda DiMeglio, Newhouse, Entertainment Sales Manager at LA’s InterContinental Hotel

John Campisi, Newhouse 1990, Film Agent at Creative Artists Agency

Michael Franceschi, VPA 2001, Supervising Animator at Nickelodeon Animation

Amy Taylor, VPA 1999, Character FX TD at DreamWorks Animation

Mike Stern, VPA 2000, Character Animator at DreamWorks Animation

Wade Ryer, VPA 1997, Character TD at DreamWorks Animation

Sandy Prisbell, VPA 2002, Designer of Barbie Consumer Products at Mattel

Check out this advice from Newhouse alumna (magazine major) Stacy Small (@elitetravelgal)!
