Need a Private Room for Job or Internship Interviews?

Our colleagues in Event Management have identified a number of reservable rooms in Alexander Twilight Hall that students can request for private space during the building’s open hours – be it to take a remote class, or to schedule a job interview, or private appointment.

To reserve a private space, please log on to the Event Reservation Request Form and enter any of the following rooms in the location field: 

  • AXT 110
  • AXT 204
  • AXT 206
  • AXT 305

Please note that they will need at least 24hours notice to reserve the space. If you are looking to request space during the weekend, please submit your request no later than Friday @ noon.

All of the rooms highlighted above in Twilight for one student only. These are not group study spaces.

An additional resource for student study space and reservable seats for the fall semester is the Davis Family Library. Please visit https://www.middlebury.edu/library/news/library-plans-fall-2020 for more information on reserving study space in the Library.

A Handshake profile picture will make your profile 7x more likely to be viewed by an employer

When it comes to searching for an internship or job, the process can feel daunting and overwhelming (especially now during COVID). Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing a few helpful tools and platforms to help you in the job searching process.

HANDSHAKE is one of CCI’s most helpful tools as Middlebury’s online job and opportunities platform. Use Handshake to discover and explore internships, jobs, organizations, and events all personalized to your specific career interests.

This week’s tip is to make sure you upload a PROFILE PICTURE and to complete your profile. Profiles are 7 times more likely to be viewed when there is a photo, as opposed to leaving it blank. Make sure that you use a photo where you are professionally dressed (does not need to be a suit), and you are the only person in the photo (meaning you are alone and not just cropped out of a group photo).

If you have any questions about your Handshake profile, please drop into Quick Question hours (go/pcas for the hours) and meet with one of our Peer Career Advisors.
