You’ve earned your degree and now it’s time to enter the real world. You have the skills and qualifications necessary to find a job thanks to your classroom experience and hands-on training, but you aren’t sure how to find and apply for open positions. That’s where Career Services come in!
At Charter College, we offer our students comprehensive Career Services that can help you research and find job postings, prepare your professional portfolio, and get ready for your job interviews. And you can take advantage of all this while you’re a student and even after you graduate. Here’s how to make the most out of Career Services:
Don’t wait until you graduate. Get started now! You can begin your job search before you finish your program. That way, when it’s time for you to enter the workforce, you’ll be ready to apply and be prepared for interviews.
Work on your resume so it’s ready when you’re ready to apply for jobs. Be sure to continually update it as you earn certificates and gain experience. Because a quality resume will help you stand out among other applicants, it’s important that it’s well-written, free of errors, and properly formatted. Whether it’s done or you haven’t even started, bring your resume to Career Services for some expert advice. We can give you ideas and examples, provide helpful tips, and give you feedback on your drafts.
We can help you prep for interviews. We have plenty of resources you can access so you’ll know what kind of questions to expect and how to answer them. You can also participate in mock interviews, so you’ll have plenty of practice before it’s time for the real thing. And we’ll provide you constructive feedback on how you did and how you can improve.
Do you have the perfect attire for your interview? What you wear and how you present yourself is important. Career Services can provide you with tips on how to put your best foot forward so you make a good first impression when you go on interviews.
