AFS hired 8 Midd grads last year.  They are a premium employer especially interested in Midd students looking for jobs and internships.  This is a big deal!  Attend to get the inside scoop from this special alum and senior leader in the field of consulting and IT.

At the forefront of innovation, AFS is focused on trends in information technology, including cloud, mobility, and social computing. AFS is about combining human-centric design with commercial practices and new technologies and they focus on delivering real outcomes –from rescuing healthcare.gov, to transforming one of the largest supply chains in the world for the Department of State, to redefining the student loan business and experience. They’re on the leading edge of fundamentally redefining the next generation of government.

Join us to meet John Goodman and learn more from other alums and also hear about the hiring and interview process from recruiters.

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.
