If you’ve been by the Career Services office or to any one of their workshops, then you know Handshake is the new kid on the block! So what is Handshake? 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.

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. CSS students can set up accounts at css.joinhandshake.com.

Career Services Job Search Presentation

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

With terminal internships starting July 10th for the 3rd year CSS Doctorate of Physical Therapy students, it was only fitting to have Mary Anderson, the Director of Career Services at the College of St. Scholastica, come chat with us regarding resume and cover letter writing, the interview process, and social media/LinkedIn set up. Mary went through an hour presentation for us, answering questions and giving us all sorts of examples along the way. She also provided us with a few check lists and a “Job Search Handbook” presented by Career Services. Overall, it was a really informational presentation and I highly recommend anyone, whether you are an incoming freshman or current student to swing by Career Services on main campus or shoot them an e-mail to take advantage of the services they provide to CSS students. #SaintsGetHired

LinkedIn Workshop

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Last semester I took a Career exploration class and learned a lot about the professional world and about building my personal brand. I was glad to hear that this semester Career Services will be having a number of workshops to help students prepare for jobs and interviews, while utilizing LinkedIn. I recently offered to help any student needing assistance with setting up their profile or customizing it to better reflect their personality. If you need help with your profile, let me know or visit Career Services or set up a meeting with the Job Skills Assistant in the Writing Center!
