Graduation is fast approaching for KU’s fall seniors and the panic is settling in. The thought of leaving the comfort of a college campus brings on high anxiety, little sleep, and ripping ones hair out to “get it together” before the end.
What is one to do when there is approximately two months and fifteen days left before the big day? Well seniors, the Career Development Center (CDC) has a few ideas for you.
This semester began in full swing with Senior Kickoffs for each respective college, an event which showcased options for seniors who are making their prospective plans for after college. News of the famous Mock Interview Mania Week also began circulating again for seniors and other KU students alike to gain interviewing experience with real employers.
Each seminar and event, presented by Director of the CDC Kerri Gardi, comes with hands-on experience and advice on interviewing, professional wardrobe, how to properly write cover letters and resumes, and many more interesting facts about what the work force is like.
If you are a senior or a student looking for some direction and need guidance, the CDC has several other events coming up, including “Thinking About Grad School” today at 11 a.m. in MSU 218, Test Prep Sessions, Sunday, Oct. 7 at 2 p.m. online (sign up at careers.kutztown.edu), “Exploring Careers Through Externships & Job Shadowing” Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 11 in MSU 250, and many more throughout the months.
The CDC also offers students the opportunity to submit resumes, cover letters, and interview stream links to their office to be reviewed by its staff. In short, there is no need to panic if you don’t have it all together. The resources are at your fingertips and ready to serve you. Visit the CDC located in 113 Stratton Administration.
