Dear Union Students,
The school year is almost done – you did it! Whether this is your first year and you’ve got one year of college under your belt or you’re a senior getting ready to graduate, (congratulations are definitely in order) the Becker Career Center can help. Before you head home (or to the beach!) for the summer, take a minute to make sure you are setting yourself up for success! Below, we have provided important dates to keep in mind before the end of the term.
You must attend a 30 minute UCAN orientation if you are interested in accessing Union’s alumni database. UCAN provides over 11,000 Union alumni willing to speak with current Union students and offer career advice. This orientation will teach protocol for appropriate use, strategies for alumni outreach, and the steps to conducting an effective informational interview. The dates are as follows:
May 9, 1:00pm May 11, 1:00pm
May 15, 4:00pm May 17, 1:00pm
May 23, 1:00pm May 26, 12:00pm
June 1, 4:00pm
Do you have questions about LinkedIn? Attend a workshop and learn the basics, including an overview of what LinkedIn does, how to build your profile, appropriate networking strategies, and how to expand your network. It can be an awesome tool to help you connect with professionals! We advise that you bring your own computer, if possible. We are only holding TWO more workshops before the end of the term, so mark your calendars!
May 10, 4:00pm and May 22, 1:00pm
Students wishing to participate in on-campus internship recruitment opportunities must attend one of these hands-on programs. During this 45-minute session you will search internship databases to identify employers who are looking for you and learn how to compete effectively for opportunities of interest.
May 9, 1:00pm and May 11, 4:00pm
