New Resources from the CPDC

The Career and Professional Development Center has developed resources for both graduated students and returning students to help with their job search and professional development during this pandemic, including:

  • A schedule of upcoming Job Search Work Groups for recent graduates (bachelors and masters students are both welcome to attend.) Job Search Work Groups were created to guide recent graduates through the job search process. Each work group session will highlight one stage of this process. Although CPDC Career Consultants will introduce and guide each session topic, the goal is to provide a space for peer-to-peer support through the sharing of questions, tips, challenges and successes.

  • An Alternative Summer Plans tip sheet, with suggestions for how students can build the skills and experiences employers are seeking, aside from completing a traditional internship. Learn more
  • A Nurturing your Mental Health During Your Job Search handout, with FAQs and helpful tips for self-care. Learn more 

Your Dietrich College Career consultants, Joe Battelline and Kristin Staunton, will continue to be available for 1:1 student appointments via Zoom this summer.

CPDC Summer Seminars: Boost Your Skills Today for Your Career Tomorrow

In an effort to support students whose internships and/or summer plans were negatively impacted by COVID-19, the Career & Professional Development Center has launched CPDC Summer Seminars: Boost Your Skills Today for Your Career Tomorrow.

This summer program comprises 10 virtual seminars to help you develop practical skills for the workplace, such as project management, design thinking, data storytelling, and more. These seminars are led by employers, thus providing you an opportunity to network and learn.  Once you have completed a seminar (or more), we encourage you to add these learnings to your resume.  Kristin and Joe are available for appointments all summer if you would like help updating your resume.  Our team made a concentrated effort to select broad topics that are applicable and transferable to as many students as possible, regardless of major.
