Welcome back from Feb break! With spring around the corner now is the time to energize your planning for life after Middlebury. And if you’re not quite sure where you are headed, good news – we’ve got some great programs that can help!
Class of 2013 Career Action Group
Focus on strategies for achieving your life-after-Midd goals with classmates who are also on this exciting – but often nerve-wracking – journey. We’ll meet four times early in the semester to perfect your skills in writing resumes and cover letters, networking, interviewing, and using online resources like LinkedIn and MiddNet. Interested? Contact Tim at email@example.com
LinkedIn Training for College Seniors
Hearing more and more about this professional networking site, but still unclear how to best use it? Stay tuned for scheduled workshop dates. In the meantime, start your LinkedIn profile.
Spring Job Fling
If you are looking for a job be sure to attend this on campus career fair, we are expecting over 15 Midd-friendly employers including Epic (healthcare), Peace Corps, Tuck Business Bridge, MiddCORE, DDR Global (marketing and advertising) and more. Save the date: Wednesday, March 13 from 12:00 – 2:00 pm in Coltrane Lounge. More details on MOJO.
Life as a Working Professional (back by popular demand!)
Do you know what your credit score is? Are you wondering how to manage your debt? What should you know about insurance? How do you evaluate your 401K options? If you’re wondering about these questions and more, this event is for you. Stay tuned for the date as we make final plans to set up this practical skills workshop.
Etiquette and Networking Seminar
So you’re at a cocktail party and you want to make a good impression. How do you work the room and make introductions and get introduced? Let’s say you’re at a formal dinner: which fork do you use for the salad course? Which way do you pass the bread? If these sound like amusing, yet serious questions, plan to attend this event. More details coming soon.
To top it all off, before you graduate in May (gulp!) we’ll ask you to reflect and think back over your Middlebury experience and respond to a few questions. We’re looking forward to getting valuable feedback and officially collecting your “plans at graduation”. In the meantime, check out What Midd Grads Do.
All this plus your 100 Days Party on March 16, preceded by Alumni Appreciation Week March 4-8 sponsored by the Senior Committee.
We’re here to partner and support, guide and coach. Whether you’ve just started to think about your post-grad plans, or have actively engaged since September, we’re ready! Drop in hours are every weekday between 2:00 and 5:00 pm or call 443-5100 to set up an appointment to speak with a counselor.
