Spring time at Middlebury means outdoor eats at Proctor, really pretty flowers, an awesome MCAB concert, jumps at Bristol Falls, and of course…job fair!
This year, the Center for Education in Action (Career Services, Alliance for Civic Engagement, Health Professions Advising, and Student Fellowships & Scholarships) is hosting an “Action Fair” rather than the annual “Job Fair” since our line-up has extended to grad schools, fellowship programs, service opportunities, counseling in various industries in addition to the job leads.

For those of you scratching your heads (Sorry, I’m in a punning kind of mood) at the title—and the topic—of this piece, here’s a newsflash: many, many people spend as much (or more) time thinking about how they’re going to wear their hair at their presentation as they do thinking about what they’re going to say at their presentation.
(And while I will admit the preponderance of these conversations tend to be with women, I have had in-depth hair conversations with my male clients, too.)
My trouble is that I can think of few people in the world less qualified to talk about hair than myself. Mine mystifies me, which is why I outsourced the whole project to my wonderful stylist, Dickey, and why I sat down with him recently to get the answers to some of your most pressing questions:

Federal agencies are catching on to the social media craze and leveraging that technology to attract job seekers, especially young recruits. For example, the Labor Department advertises open positions on Twitter and plans to upload its recruitment videos to YouTube. The State Department regularly updates its Facebook page and maintains the @DOSCareers Twitter account. But conventional wisdom, which holds that recent college graduates and tech-savvy young professionals respond favorably to anything on the Internet, doesn’t always apply when it comes to federal recruiting.
Recruiting “can’t simply be about information dissemination rather than a real engagement, dialogue, discussion with potential applicants,” says Tim McManus, vice president for education and outreach at the Partnership for Public Service. “One of the best mechanisms is to use those who have walked in the shoes. People want to see where people like them fit in.”
Interview Day: February 5, 2010 in Arlington, VA
Application Deadline: January 6 — Apply over winter break!
What is the Capital Consortium? Basically, it’s a one-day interview extravaganza. Students from Middlebury, Connecticut College, Colgate, Hamilton, Smith, Tufts, Trinity, and Wesleyan apply to interview for jobs.
This event is an easy, efficient way to avoid the job-search panic of spring semester — especially if you’re going to be in the D.C. area for February break. Numerous Middlebury graduates have received job offers from this event!
15 employers are currently registered to interview students at the event and more are anticipated to register before the January 6 student application deadline date.
Hopefully you’ve got the hang of using MOJO to apply for jobs and keep track of on-campus recruiting events. It’s a great resource that focuses on employers who actively recruit Middlebury students, so the chances of them liking you are high! But, how often do you head over to LACN from MOJO?
LACN…”lackin”… is that even a word?
No, it’s not. But it is another place to search for employers who are actively targeting students like you — smart, hard-working, multi-talented liberal arts kids. You can get to LACN by linking to it from MOJO. Unfortunately, the process for linking directly is complicated and you would have to register, etc. The easiest way is to head to the MOJO home page, and under “Jump to” click LACN. The format is almost exactly the same, but there are a lot more jobs!
