The career office can, however, help get your foot in the door with employers because they do the following things to support your job search:
1. Develop strong relationships with employers
2. Secure and make available job leads for all students
3. Share with you what specific employers want
4. Assist you to create a stronger resume
5. Help you with job interview practice and preparation
6. Coach you through a specific job search strategy
8. Host employers for on-campus mock interviews or real interviews
9. Provide faculty and administration with feedback about professional skills demanded by industry
Despite all your career center does, you ultimately will be in the job interview by yourself and you must sell your skills and your brand to employers.
Proactive students are successful, when they take responsibility for his/her own job search.
Keep in mind also that you will have to conduct a successful job search many times throughout your career. Gaining the skills to do it successfully is critical to your long term professional success.
