8 Week Job Search Group for 2011-2012 L&S Graduates

Now that you've invested in your degree, learn essential job search strategies proven to be far more effective than responding to job listings alone. Transitioning to the world of work after college can be daunting. In this eight week group, two experienced career counselors from L&S Career Services, Nell Weatherwax and Maureen Muldoon will guide you through the process for developing the necessary skills to survive in the current job market. Come ready to network with fellow freshly graduated job seekers and to learn about effective strategies and resources available to you as UW alumni (or soon-to-be-alumni.)

In the group format you will have the chance to connect with others, share ideas and resources, and further define your goals through discussion and activities.

Some of the weekly meeting discussion topics will include:
Ø      Creating your job search action plan
Ø      Boosting your online presence – using LinkedIn and other social media outlets
Ø      Interview skills building
Ø      Informational interviewing and other networking skills
Ø      Resumes and Cover Letters
