Career Services Training

Tuesday, September 17th, 2019

This year, I quit my job at career services. One of my summer internships turned into a part time, online volunteer job, which meant that I could no longer afford to work there anymore. However, because I gave a relatively short notice, I offered to volunteer for a couple of weeks while the new student employee gets comfortable with the work. To be honest, she is far more driven than I was, and I am confident that once she gains some more experience, she will be a better fit than me in the long run. For now I am simply enjoying the fun of working in the warm, welcoming environment career services has always offered, without the pressure of getting the work done myself!

CIS Career Center

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

One resource that I did not find out about until later on in my college career as a CIS student is the CIS Career Center website. This website serves as a blog for CSS CIS students and is frequently updated with job and internship opportunities in the local area. It also has information about the internship process and how to find an internship that interests you. As a CIS student, you are required to complete an internship during your college experience so if you are thinking about what you will need to do to secure an internship either this summer or in the future, this is a great resource for you. As I said earlier, I wish I would have known more about this website earlier on so I would like to get the word out to current or future CSS CIS students so they can take advantage of it. Here is the link to the website: https://saintscis.wordpress.com

Hometown Internship

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

It has been a little over two weeks since I got back home to India. I was able to nail down an internship by default, and couldn’t be more pleased. I figured sharing this would be a great insight for all students. When most international students go back to spend their summer back home, getting a part-time job or work experience in on’e related field should be priority. As you know the culture and have connections in your country, that may help you get better positions while supporting your career.
