August 27, 2021 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

We are so excited to welcome students back to the Hilltop and to the Cawley Career Education Center! It’s great to see students (and our fellow staff members) in person.

We will keep this short and sweet as September and October are the busiest months of the year for juniors and seniors interested in business positions, and in particular, consulting positions.

To that end we have separated out our consulting opportunities into their own newsletter; check your inbox for that newsletter if you are interested in recruiting for consulting. This newsletter will focus on business and finance positions.
How Does It All Work?Employers are generally funneled through the Cawley Career Education Center. So if you are in the market for an internship or job, here are ways to find out who is coming to campus and how to get help with your resume and cover letter. 

1. Resume and Cover Letter Help. We have drop-ins Monday – Friday from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. No appointment needed – just stop by and meet with a Peer Career Advisor. 

2. One-on-One Appointments (new window) with Staff (new window). You can go to Handshake and make an appointment with a staff member. Don’t see appointments available? Check on Monday to see what new appointment slots have been added.
