Career Development Week


Next week, November 10 – 14, is Career Development Week. The Career Development Center is hosting an event every day next week, so be sure to stop in Dooling 121 for pancakes, prizes and more!


Monday, we will have a table in the DUC during the lunch hour for students to tell us about their dream job.

Tuesday is the Art of Small Talk with guest speaker Eve Tannery from 69 News in the Trexler room in the DUC from 5:30-7:00. Learn the ins-and-outs of networking in a professional setting and grab some good food.

Wednesday is Career Development Day. The Director of Career Development, Kristin Eicholtz, will be making pancakes for students from 9:00-11:00 in Dooling 121, as well as giving out career advice.

Thursday is Inquire by the Fire from 7:00-8:00 in the McShea Commons; this gives students who have never had an internship an opportunity to meet with their peers who have. And as always, there are s’mores and hot chocolate.

Friday is our Instagram Contest! If you take a picture of “what success means to you” throughout the week and post it on Instagram and tag the Career Development Center @dsucareer you will be entered to win two tickets to the upcoming Student Activities trip to New York. The most creative post wins!
