We’re coming off the high of Homecoming weekend and the kickoff of Wake Will, our capital campaign, and starting you off on Monday with an opportunity for your students. As I hope many of you know by now, we have a very robust Office of Personal and Career Devel0pment. They are a national leader in how colleges can redefine the old ‘career center’ concept of simply matching students with employers, and instead are trying to help students think purposefully about their futures. The OPCD has a whole host of tools that students can use to discern their gifts, talents, interests, and passions – so they can be matched not just with ANY job, but with the job that best suits them and will lead – we hope – to long term happiness.
Many of our graduates have an interest in living and working in New York City, and there is an event in December that might help them have a better sense of potential careers. Please feel free to share this with your student if you think he/she might enjoy this program. There is an initial information session later this week, and students must apply to this program. Full details are below.
If you’ve ever considered living the life of an Ad Agent, Media Executive, Fashion Consultant, Film Producer, Fine Arts Specialist, or Journalist in one of the world’s most culturally diverse and bustling cities. This is the trip for you!
The Office of Personal and Career Development invites you to join us December 15 – 17, 2013 on the New York City Career Trek, where you’ll get to immerse yourself in the company culture of some of the world’s leading brands and industry giants. See below.
Alumni from NYC will also be available to help you understand how to navigate the career process and opportunities in the Big Apple.
Find out more at the NYC Career Trek Information Session on October 24, 2013 at 4 PM in ZSR Auditorium. Visit the OPCD website to apply or for additional information click here.
