December 13, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

From the Advisor: 

Hello Hoyas! And Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa. May the blessings of this season come to each of you and yours. I hope you take this time to get some much-needed rest and relaxation. If you do want to explore the world of careers on your break (or if your parents are bugging you about jobs/ internships), please feel free to do any/all/none of the following: 

  • Rest. Seriously. Please take a good few days to just rest, relax and sleep. Especially with all the colds/flus and whatnot that have been going about, the best thing for your career is to take the time to refresh and renew your body. 
  • Save the date. We have a number of fun activities coming up in the spring, so put these on your calendars: 

                1, Jumpstart January: January 4-11, 2023. 
                2. Government, Education & Nonprofit Career Fair | February 17 | 10am – 3pm EST | Online 
                3. Hoyas for Others Networking Night | Tuesday, March 21 | 6pm – 7:30pm | HFSC Social Room 

  • Research. The break is a great time to start to put together a list of potential employers/internships. Look for employers on Handshake, and be sure to mark them as a ‘Favorite’ employer. Doing so ensures you get emails whenever they post new positions, or come to an event on campus. Also follow potential employers on social media so you are aware of what’s going on and issues they are facing as an organization. Need help organizing your research? Check out this template!
  • Network. Use this time to reach out to your local alumni network. Use your local alumni group, or Hoya Gateway to see who may be nearby and see if folks are up for coffee. 
  • Have fun. Relax. Do nothing. An underrated and under-used way to look at careers. But after being ‘on’ for so long, learning the art of rest and relaxation can help you better focus when you get back to school. 

And with that, I wish you all a blessed holiday season and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
