Get Your Career on Track this Semester

February 8, 2018

The Career Collection room at James Dickson Carr Library offers students a wealth of resources to help jumpstart their careers, from a Bloomberg Terminal that provides real-time market data to test prep materials for the GMAT and GRE. But this semester, a unique partnership with University Career Services will bring additional career-centric programming to the library to help students as they prepare for the next step after college.

Things kick off this afternoon at 2 p.m. with Finding Potential Employers for Career and Job Opportunities, a workshop designed to help international students focus their job search, identify potential employers, and prepare for job interviews. Throughout the semester, University Career Services will also sponsor drop-in resume critiques from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Career Collection room. These 15-minute sessions will allow students to connect with peers who have been specially trained to provide feedback on improving resumes.

Forthcoming events include meetups designed to help students in specific career clusters navigate issues from exploring their career options to planning for graduate school.

The Libraries will also be doing a series of #CareerThursday posts on social media for the remainder of the semester to highlight tips, tricks, and resources to help students get their careers on track.

“It’s been a pleasure working with University Career Services to develop new ways to support Rutgers students as they begin to explore their careers,” said business and entrepreneurship librarian Jordan Nielsen. “It’s important that we provide the resources and programming students need to prepare themselves for success in the world of work.”
