DSU Career Networking Event, 2/6

6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday, February 6, 2013
DeSales University Center

Join us for an exciting Career Networking Program with DSU alumni. Alumni will share their insights and ideas on networking and other job hunting strategies.

The event kicks off with a panel of DeSales alumni in a wide variety of fields including criminal justice and law, medicine, communications, business and more. The panel will help students understand what employers look for in job candidates, the pitfalls of the job search and how to avoid them, dress for success ideas and more.

Faculty: please encourage your students to attend this wonderful opportunity. 

Following the panel discussion, the event changes into a networking event where students can implement what they have learned by networking with alumni.

This is an important event for students and we hope you can join us. To sign up, contact Dug Salley, director of alumni relations, at dug.salley@desales.edu or call 610.282.1100, ext. 1694.

Seeking Scholarship Day Assistance

Scholarship Day for the incoming freshman class will be held this Saturday, February 2.

Undeclared students will be attending the morning session of Scholarship Day. We are looking for faculty members to help interview Undeclared students who have not yet indicated a track of study. In the past the number of Undeclared students has exceeded the number of faculty members available to interview them in the allotted time, so any volunteers would be much appreciated.

Faculty interviewers will be needed from 9:00AM – 11:00AM. Please consider this a real opportunity to recruit these students to your divisions.

If you are available to help or have any questions, please contact Melissa Tran at Melissa.Tran@desales.edu or ext. 1328.
