August 18, 2021 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

From the Advisor: It’s almost time!

Hey #Hoyas! I hope you are doing well. Many of you are already on campus, or will be moving in the next few days. How exciting. 

Please know that it is not too late to look into internships for the fall. Most organizations are starting virtual, with the option to move in-person as health guidelines allow. 

In fact, according to Daybook Jobs, openings in political, public policy, non-profit and government relations jobs were up 28% in July compared to June. THey are even offering a 90 Day Free Subscription to Daybook Premium to view all the jobs and internships available online. 

What’s more is that Traverse Jobs is saying the same thing. “August is a ‘hot’ time to look for jobs. With the exception of the Fourth of July holiday week, full-time job and internship posts have been increasing to record levels the past six weeks.”

Sometimes I find out about internships/jobs or information sessions at the last minute. To try to get those out to you, I’ve set up a few ‘classes’ on the Remind App. Find the group below and follow the prompts to sign up: 

Also, if you are looking for a cool part-time job opportunity on campus this year, I am hiring. In this role, you’ll help me advise students interested in working in the federal government. The “SIA-Government” advisor will help underclasspersons on federal resume writing, cover letter writing, and basic interview skills. Previous mentoring/teaching experience is a plus but not required – I’ll teach you all that I know. Well maybe not *everything,* but training is provided. Deadline to apply is Friday, September 3rd.

Last, for those of you wanting to make an appointment, just a quick note that drop-ins will start next week, and one on one appointments will begin for upperclassmen on August 25th. Be sure to check Handshake on the 23rd for new appointments.

See you soon!!!
