Here’s a little article from newsletters that college career counselors read…
Thought you might like to know what is going onnnnn.
Employers are looking for more professionalism from the college students and recent grads they hire for internships and entry-level jobs, according to the 2010 Professionalism in the Workplace Poll conducted by the Center for Professional Excellence at York College in Pennsylvania.
The study questioned more than 400 business leaders and human resources executives across the United States. Its key finding: 38.2% of the respondents said that less than half of all new college graduates demonstrate professionalism in the workplace.

We can’t wait to see you all at the Senior Meeting!
How do you follow-up with those guest lecturers who have great industry experience or the speakers you heard at an event? Whether you had the chance to speak to them at the time or not, the likelihood of getting a response to an email is very high. Why? You will probably be the only person who reaches out to them. The majority of people who rush a speaker at the end of an event and ask for a business card never follow up. This is a big mistake because these individuals have two assets you do not, a lot of relevant experience and knowledge, and relationships that could open doors for you.
Below are examples of an email introduction to a speaker you heard in class or at an event; one is weak, one is great:
Despite the whole senior class not fitting into Atwater Dining Hall all at once (thank you underclassmen who crashed our party), Middlebury Class of 2010 conquered its 100 days reconnecting with old MOO buddies, dancing to Backstreet Boys, and drinking with best friends.
That party took place a week ago. Do you know what that means? Seniors now have about 92 more days until graduation.
Still looking for a job? Considering graduate school? Maybe an internship?
8th Annual Spring Job Fling
Tuesday, March 2.
By Matt Krumrie
I did it. I closed my account on Monster.com. I had not checked it in years, and forgot I even had a profile and resumes out there. I had subscribed to a number of career-related newsletters on Monster, and while browsing an article, I saw the account log-in information and it reminded me that, yes indeed, I do have an account with Monster. I decided I should probably check into it.
What I found was shocking. I found a profile that was outdated, included personal information such as my home address, home phone number and cell phone number. This left me ripe for someone to try and steal my identity and/or leave me open to unwanted spam.
I was also shocked at how awful my profile really was, and how inaccurate the description of my career really was. I wouldn’t have even hired me four years ago when I last had checked in.
If you have a profile on Monster, Career Builder, Dice.com – or any other big job board, and are not updating or following it, I recommend you delete it, and here are five reasons why:
1. Protect yourself
If you have too much information listed, you can leave yourself open to identity theft, and to receive unwanted spam. Do we really know who is looking at our public profile? Do we really want anyone in the world to know more information about us than they should?
Too cool for facebook? LinkedIn is just the thing for you! LinkedIn is a business-oriented social networking site that connects you to classmates, colleagues, employers and even “others”. Think of it as professional networking that you can do in your pajamas.
For those who are already LinkedIn, brush off the dust on your profile and update it! Let your connections know about your most recent work/volunteer/educational experience. Connect with more people using their “People You May Know” application. It’s AMAZING how LinkedIn knows who you may know…almost scary.
Hello seniors! Are you aware of the recent changes Facebook made? If you haven’t updated your privacy setting, YOU REALLY SHOULD.
Weren’t you (pleasantly) surprised to see that you could view the profile pictures of that girl or guy you ran into at the hockey game? Wasn’t it cool to see the list of movies he or she liked and sense a sort of connection with that person? Is this getting creepy?
Let’s just say, you are not the only one with special powers. Others can do the same thing with your profile meaning that your private information like status updates, photos, and even shared links are exposed to the general public, which **HINT HINT** includes your parents, professors, and – yes, I’ll go there – your future employers.
How about we prevent the makings of another sob story? Go and update your facebook privacy settings today! To those of you who are facebook retarded, the New York Times can help you fix your settings.
