eRecruiting Update Time
Get your account and your resume ready to be seen
It’s the start of a new quarter, so that means it is time for you to update yourself in eRecruiting! Everyone should be logging in as soon as possible to upload a new resume and update their profile. Pay special attention to your GPA, class status, job intent and date of graduation. Companies already have jobs in the system that you can apply for, and we already have many info sessions and events planned for you to attend!
New Career Services eBoard up and running
Get news about upcoming events & share your events, too
If you haven’t noticed the new bling in the Union lobby, take a look on the wall near the backpack cubbies the next time you’re waiting in line for lunch. You should see the new Career Services eBoard, which is our way of helping you stay in touch with upcoming events, company sponsored programs, and events within Student Affairs. If you’re part of a registered student organization, you can submit ads to run on our board! Be in touch with Charity Mouck for a spec sheet and details about how our eBoard works.
