Creative Fields – Upcoming Events, Opportunities and Resources

From the Advisor:

Finally, respite from the heat! I hope everyone is enjoying a gentle transition to the fall weather. Dare I tempt fate and say we’ve entered “sweater weather” season?

While you cozy up with your favorite beverage of choice, grab your laptop and scroll, scroll to the “Don’t Miss the Deadline” section. It’s a real grab bag of spring and summer opportunities. As I learn about internships and fellowships from major employers, I add them. Is it everything that’s out there? No. Do your due diligence; check out the early careers section of employer websites; and sign up for job alerts. The bigger the employer, the greater likelihood they have earlier deadlines. (Generally speaking, not always.) If you are interested in marketing roles at tech firms, those tend to be early as well.

Make sure you are ready to apply when you see an opportunity that appeals. Once again, consider this a gentle nudge in the direction of Resume Worded, free for Georgetown University students. Resume Worded will give your resume a score, which always sends students into a panic. It’s not your final grade! Instead of the score, check out the advice. It’s a truly useful AI tool. Check it out.

Good luck, Hoyas! And grab that cozy sweater for the time being.
