Workshops

The Career Center staff is available to present on-campus workshops on a variety of topics to your class, group, or club. For the Fall 2020 semester, we will be offering virtual workshops.
We have two options available: 

1) Live: synchronous virtual workshop - available for any workshop on our menu below 

2) Pre-Recorded: we have pre-recorded several of our most popular workshops for non-synchronous groups; there is an option to request a live, 15-minute post-workshop Q&A with a Career Advisor as part of the request form

(Pre-Recorded workshops available at this time: Beginning Resumes; Advanced Resumes; Successful Interviewing; Job/Internship Search; Focus2Career; LinkedIn)
