Taking advantage of private school opportunities

One of the things that I’m constantly telling friends, family, and other students about going to a small private school like Muskingum is the awesome hands-on opportunities and one-on-one attention that you are able to take advantage of. Today, I attended a small meeting with Career Services – including myself, two other students, and the Director of Career Services Jackie Vascura – that walks seniors through what the job application and interviewing process is like. Jackie and Joy, Career Services Administrative Assistant, supplied a super helpful packet with job search websites, sample resumes and cover letters, a list of great words to use in resumes to describe your skills and experiences, possible interviewing questions, tips on conducting yourself in an interview … Basically anything that they could think of to make my preparation and job search and interviews stand out and to make the process easier. Jackie walked us through the entire packet, pointed out helpful tips, took our questions, and talked about jobs and companies she’d worked with that might give each of us a place to start looking. She and Joy also go out of their way to make sure students are able to set up individual appointments to go over resumes, cover letters, and take part in mock interviews. I know that my job search isn’t going to be easy, but it feels great to have a resource and support system of people that really care about helping me succeed and become a successful Muskie alum!

I hope your week is off to a productive start also! 🙂
