We know that interviews can be nerve-wracking. This workshop will help you understand how to prepare before, during, and after the interview. This includes, what to wear, how to act, sample questions for the interviewer, and more.

  Graduate School Prep

This workshop covers the important steps of preparing for and applying to graduate school including writing a statement of purpose and creating a CV.

  Salary Negotiation

According to Nerdwallet, only 38% of recent graduates negotiate their salary upon receiving a job offer. And that’s despite three-quarters of employers saying they typically have room to increase their first salary offer anywhere between 5 - 10%. In this workshop, we will address how to evaluate an offer and learn negotiation strategies that will help you feel more confident and prepared for your first job after graduation.

  Identities at Work

We know that students have particular needs for their job search depending on their background and situation. We also recognize that the subjects of identity and career often intersect as students become professionals navigating career opportunities and workplace environments. During this presentation, the Career Center offers resources and programs designed for students who identify with underrepresented and marginalized backgrounds.
