Job Fair

by / February 21st, 2019 / No Comments »
Today there is a job fair in Minneapolis. Living in Duluth, it may be a struggle to head to the cities for the career fair. However, Saint Scholastica did a great job promoting the event to students and making it accessible. Professor excuse their students to take the day off to participate in fair. In addition, CSS offered rides to student by ordering a bus. Career fairs are important because it allows students to find out about internship, full times and even expand network. I am glad our school makes career fairs accessible!

This year there is a new leadership program initiated at CSS. The program is designed to enhance and develop interpersonal leadership. The program is open to sophomore, juniors and seniors who have shown significant leadership in campus or attended a leadership program over the fall. In order to fulfill the requirement, student must attend a series of event within the next few months. In addition, students must turn in a final project. I am looking froward to learning more about the saints leadership and perhaps accomplishing the criteria to achieve.

Cover Letter

For my management communications course, we learned how to write a professional cover letter. Many folks in our classroom are applying for internships or full time positions and many companies have the option for students to upload a cover letter. The cover letter is an addition to the resume just describing a bit more of the applicant. I am thankful my class went over how to write a cover letter. In addition, I was able to learn a bit more how to write a cover letter through career services. I am confident now to initiate a cover letter.

Last week the OIP office held an OPT workshop aimed for international students who are to graduate this upcoming May. The OPT is a temporary employment permit that allows for international students to work  in the US for a year upon graduation. Since students are to apply to this permit, students were to become familiar with the process, specially the application's time frame. After attending this event and getting a checklist of the required documents, I proceeded to start my OPT application this past Monday.

Working on Portfolio

by / February 20th, 2019 / No Comments »
One of the courses I am currently taking is called the Pursuit of Happiness?, and one of the assignments I will be working on throughout the semester is creating a portfolio. This portfolio will be made up of journals, interviews, reflections and some happiness related artifacts. I am currently working on the interviews or informal research component of it. The interviews have been quite interesting and so far I have been able to ask people both on-campus and off-campus about what happiness means for them. Getting to hear other's point of view has been quite intriguing, I am half way done with the interviews and in total will be interviewing 20 people.
