Step 4: Career Services
Part of your tuition dollars goes to funding the career services office — where you can find professionals more than willing to help you in your career and job quest. Find tips for using your college’s career services office.
Register With Your School’s Career Services Office
You’re not going to get anywhere until you register with the career services office at your college.
Services Offered by College Career Services Offices
Find the office. Once there, you’ll find all sorts of resources and help in preparing for a successful job search, including help with your cover letter and resume, interviewing help, on-campus recruiting, and many other services.
On-campus Recruiting Through Career Services
Only a small number of all companies recruit on college campuses, but you still may find some gems there so make sure you follow the announcements — and then sign up for interviews with companies that interest you. The Career Services may also work with the Alumni Office to help current students network with alumni — so make sure you ask!
