Take a moment to look through the tabs listed on the Career Services Libguide at http://libguides.mac.edu/CS.
A calendar of activities is also posted there to keep you informed about all of the workshops, career fairs, and other campus and community events to make your job-search preparation easier. While all the activities listed above can be done at any time during your academic career, you will be encouraged to participate in job-preparation classes and practicums each year. The goal is to be fully prepared and confident heading into your senior year, prior to your first professional job search. The Career Services Office can help to explain the process that many companies use to recruit, screen, and select their new employees. A job search can be a stressful time, so working on job-search activities during each year of college will greatly decrease stress and increase the effectiveness of your résumé presentation and interview capabilities when you enter the job market. Guides and online strategy resources for your job search are also available at the Henry Pfeiffer Library. The Library also has information and guides on graduate schools and placement testing.
