Happy Monday, Ramblers!
Last week, I had the pleasure of returning to my old school, CU Boulder, to be a guest speaker at a professional chapter that I was president of during my time in school. The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) meeting was on the importance of interviewing.
As I sat there sharing with current students vital tips and pieces of advice, it dawned on me just how critical the interview is in the stage of the job process. As a peer career advisor in school, part of my job was to coach undergraduate students of all majors in how to nail the interview process. I thought it would be helpful to share my best practices for you all, in case you are a young professional in the middle of the job/internship hunt!
How’s the holiday season treating you? Hopefully well! I’m currently curled up by my fireplace with the Christmas lights and holiday movies playing as I write this. Anyways, if you’re anything like me, as much as you love the holidays, you also like getting a head start on the New Year. For many of you young adults who will be looking for summer internships, or your first job if you're graduating in May; this one's for you. To start your new year job search, I’ve put together a couple of job search strategies and tips that will hopefully give you some guidance.
This week is on professional development. Raise your hand if you need a resume review! All of you should be raising your hands. It is always good to be constantly learning, growing, and getting feedback.
