September 6, 2021 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

Dear Hoyas

Long weekends are a great time to get a jump on things, including recruiting. With that in mind, here are three things you can do this weekend to make your job search easier:

1. Set up a job alert in Handshake. You set the parameters, Handshake sends you the jobs. Learn more about how to do so here (new window)

2. Register for a Career Fair. Let the employers come to you! Cawley is hosting three virtual career fairs in the next two weeks. They are:

  • Fall Finance Fair.  (new window)Tuesday, September 7 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Handshake. 
    Open to Juniors and Seniors. Meet with boutique investment firms, real estate investment firms, and accounting practices to learn more about internship and full-time opportunities. 
  • Consulting Niche Night.  (new window)Thursday, September 9, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
    Open to Juniors and Seniors. For students looking for internships and full-time positions in all types of consulting. Nearly 30 firms will be participating!
  • Annual Fall Career Fair.  (new window)Friday, September 17, 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
    Open to all students, all majors, all schools, undergrad and grad. Organizations from all industries are looking to hire students for internships and full time. From Appian Corporation to the the National Air and Space Museum to Vanda Pharmaceuticals, there is something for everyone.

Keep in mind that virtual fairs work a bit differently from in-person fairs; once you register for the fair you then have to reserve your time with each employer you want to meet with.

3. Put time on your calendar to get your resume reviewed.  The Cawley Career Center has drop-ins Tuesday – Friday between 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. for resume reviews. (We are closed this Monday for Labor Day). Come on by!
 And in case you missed him, Jack the Bulldog made an appearance on Healey Lawn today. Enjoy!
