Jump Starting Your Job Hunt Over Spring Break

Jump Starting Your Job Hunt Over Spring Break

As your semester has geared up with mid-terms, class projects, papers, exams, practices, and club events, you might have put your career search to the side.  Here are some tips on how to energize your career, job or internship search over spring break. 1. Pick a Direction. Students at every stage of college struggle with figuring out what they want to do. Job hunting can be completely overwhelming if you haven’t narrowed down what you actually want out of your summer or for your first destination after graduation. Use the CCPA’s self-assessment resources to evaluate your own skills, personality style, and interests. You can also contact us to talk through your ideas and questions. Try to narrow your interests down to a couple fields of interest. 2. Learn From Alumni. When you have identified some fields that interest you, contact at least 2 alumni in these fields for information and advice. Talking to alumni will help you to gain an “insider’s perspective” of a field or a certain position. They can tell you about their career path and industry trends and share advice for entering or exploring their industry further. Use our Networking Guide which contains sample emails, tips on questions to ask, and etiquette for reaching out. All HC students have access to the Haverford online alumni community, which contains the online alumni directory (click on Fords Alumni Directory). This is also a great time to update (or set-up) your LinkedIn account. Once you have this account and add your education information, you can go to www.linkedin.com/alumni and search Haverford alumni by industry and location! 3. Narrow It Down and Search. After talking with alumni about your...

Recapped: Tri-College & STEM Recruiting Day

Recapped: Tri-College & STEM Recruiting Day

What an event! Last Friday, the Career Offices of Haverford, Bryn Mawr and Swarthmore hosted a tremendous event in the field house: Tri-College and STEM Recruiting Day. Employers from STEM fields, non-profits, finance, education, and many other fields came to meet and hire Tri-Co students. Students arrived dressed in their best professional attire for morning registration and the career fair. After a brief orientation and an opportunity to take a professional headshot for their LinkedIn profiles, students reviewed the list of employers who had open interview spaces that afternoon. They then made their way to the career fair and chatted with employers to learn more about their companies. If they were interested in being considered for an interview later that day, they would share their resumes. The career fair wrapped up in the afternoon and employers submitted their picks to the career center staff during lunch. The remainder of the day was then dedicated to interviews! We had LOTS of students pick up additional interviews during the career fair, so the schedules were packed! All in all, the day was a great success! Happy employers and happy students make for happy career center staff! We hope to see you next year!...
