Have a quick question about your resume, cover letter, or those infamous job and internship searches? Then you’re in luck! KU’s Career Development Center is holding walk-in hours for quick questions on Thursday, September 16.
Typically you must make an appointment to discuss these things, but on Thursday Career Development is offering something similar to what Rohrbach offers at its Research Help Desk. Career Development will let you walk in without an appointment and ask your questions. Of course you can always make an appointment and sit down with a career counselor to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about the job search, resumes and cover letters, or even deciding whether or not to attend grad school. But if you just need a quick answer, then Thursday is the day for you.
In addition to career counselors being available to answer questions, there are many other great services you can take advantage of. For example, the career counselors regularly host information sessions on finding a job, writing resumes and cover letters, and networking. There is even a session on the forms you will be expected to fill out your first day of work. Career Development also hosts senior orientation sessions that are going on now; check for when your college’s orientation is scheduled to take place.
Not only does the center offer information sessions, but it also offers mock interviews with counselors and with real employers, resume and cover letter review services, and an etiquette dinner.
If you are just starting your job search and still don’t know what’s right for you, then stop by the center and check out its career guide collection. The center has its own lending library, but if there’s a book they recommend that they don’t have yet or is already checked out, then you can either get it in Rohrbach Library or order it via Rohrbach’s interlibrary loan.
It’s just as important to know what career services are available to you as it is to know what research services are available to you. So take advantage of the career services KU offers so you can stay ahead in the job search.
Hours: Monday-Friday 8:00-4:30, Tuesdays 8:00-6:00
