Workshops Offered Through Student Employment

Once you know your career or employment goal, the Student Employment Team at STU can help you with the job-search strategies needed to get your foot in the door.  

  • Resumes, References and Cover Letters: A requirement for our on-campus employment programs, this workshop busts common myths when writing your resumes while teaching you how to clearly articulate your skills and experiences in a way employers can understand. Don’t apply for a job without attending this workshop!  After attending the workshop, you can book a one-on-one appointment with Student Employment staff to apply what you’ve learned.
    • Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:45 am in GMH 304 from Sept 5 – Oct 12 (except Sept 6)

    • Every Friday at 2:30 pm in GMH 304 from Sept 8
  • Strategic Summer Job Search (starting in January, 2018): Employers expect students to have some career-related work experience on their resume by the time they graduate. A summer job that allows you to develop your skills is key to not only earning much-needed cash but also gaining the experience you need to get into grad school or enter the workforce. Learn about the valuable summer work programs available to you and how to apply for them.
  • Graduating Students’ Workshop (starting in January, 2018): Graduating in 2018? Attend this event to get a head start on managing your post-grad life. We’ll answer questions about repaying student loans, searching for jobs, and tapping into programs that can help you!
