Back to School…. and Career Planning


*Editor’s note: Since the publication of this article, the CCO has moved to YONG 132.*

Wow. Whoever knew the first week of school could be so jam-packed with activities and meetings already! I don’t know about you, but I’ve spent this week only being able to catch up with about half of my friends while running around to classes, work and club meetings… not to mention trying to organize my schedule around which bookstore has the books I need and when they’re open. It’s hard to believe, but maybe everyone else on this campus isn’t exactly as busy as I am…. Go figure, right?

Well, even with all that going on, I’ve still made time to update my resume and LinkedIn profile from my summer adventures and activities. It only takes a few minutes really! Just pencil in some time during commercials while you’re watching TV or use those awkward breaks in classes when you get out too early.

Remember, soon the student body will be ambushed by a Job Fair Mania! *insert Toy Story meme with “Job fairs, Job fairs everywhere” caption here* If you update your professional profiles now, you won’t be panicked in a few weeks when school picks up too!

Don’t have a resume yet or don’t know where to start? Check out the 2012 edition of the CCO Handbook or come to walk-in hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday in YONG 132. We are ready and willing to be of service to you!
