Getting ready for Career Day takes careful planning…and I’m NOT talking about the day before the event!
You will definitely want to give yourself plenty of time to update your resume, to research the employers that you are interested in talking to, and to practice your opening line (Example: With your hand extended and with a smile, politely say “Good morning! My name is <fill in blank> and I am interested in your company!”).
So, how exactly do you prepare for Career Day? Fortunately, the staff in the Career Center is ready to help you! Before the event, you are encouraged to visit the Career Center for assistance with your resume, for tips on how to dress professionally, and for strategies on how to do informational interviews. They can also provide you with a list of the employers who will be at Career Day and help you research information so that you are prepared to speak with their representatives!
Career Day will be held in the SCC Quad on Wednesday, May 6th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. But, as much as we want you to participate in this great event, do NOT skip your classes for the day! Remember, finals are just around the corner and we want you to do your best!
