How to get in the game!

Welcome Back to campus!
I know it’s hard to believe that the summer went by so fast, right? Well, here you are back on campus ready to take on a new school year. Many times students come to me and ask, “What should I be doing, for now?” For now, you should GET IN THE GAME! Well, what does that mean? It means, sophomores, juniors, and seniors have lots of opportunities stemming up this fall and many of the opportunities are for Full-time and summer opportunities. Best plan to get in the game is for you to carve out time to revise your resume, update it including your summer experience, and be ready to apply for some interesting opportunities via Bentley Link.
“Get in the Game” also means meeting professionals that are on campus who are hosting lots of fun events in order to meet YOU. Enjoy an ice cream, or BBQ, or another event a company is hosting and have fun visiting with your peers and indulging in some yummy food, but don’t forget it’s a perfect opportunity to introduce yourself to the company representatives and find out what their hiring needs are for this year. Lastly, getting in the game will include becoming a member of a few, or a lot, of Career Communities.
All students have opportunities starting soon, so I don’t want anyone feeling left out —there are opportunities for ALL MAJORS beginning now. Remember, you have to get in the game to play.
Welcome Back!
