Professional Clothing Closet

Monday, January 29th, 2018

Sponsored by Student Senate and Career Services, the Professional Clothing Closet is one of the best resources available for free for all students looking to dress up and wow recruiters or stand out at events and such. The drive was initiated some time last semester and members of the community were asked to contribute professional items they no longer had use for or thought could help out CSS students. The resource is open to all students and offers a variety of professional clothing options such as neckties, jackets, and other apparel. The best thing is you can keep the asset if you choose to! I have some suits that I have outgrown and will probably drop at the Closet and also find out what I can pick to supplement my wardrobe, which so far, has comprised of jeans and t-shirts!

Well, this is a platform where students can access lots of career opportunities based on their interests and skills and more. Visit css.joinhandshake.com to learn more and create an account. Rumor has it recruiters are using this tool to grab CSS students before they even graduate.

Career workshop for international students

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

The Office of International Programs recently organized a workshop to help acquaint international students with immigration policies and school policies regarding work on or off campus. In addition to this, students got to learn from Mary Anderson, Director of Career Services, as well as a panel of international students who have completed internships or research. I was part of the panel and felt honored to contribute to the experiences of fellow international students looking to develop their career portfolio.

Career Services is one of the best resources I have ever used on campus. The staff helps with anything from job/internship search, resume reviews, interview prep, LinkedIn setup and much more.  You can find lot of info about your job/career search process at www.css.edu/career.   Check out the new and improved hireSAINTS, now powered by Handshake.  Students can use this site for job/internships search, on-campus recruiting and event registration.  Handshake is a very cool tool and is used widely by many colleges and universities across the US.
