October 19, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

Hello Hoyas!

As mentioned in a previous newsletter, most application timelines for the health and science industry start in early Spring. Generally, the exception is health and life science consulting, rotational leadership development programs (sample employers here), and fellowships. If you are interested in a fellowship or internship program after graduation, my recommendation is to start identifying programs and track application deadlines now. Most deadlines are between now and the end of February.  Here’s a few to add to your list.

Peace Corps Advancing Health Professionals and NIH IRTA post-bac program are also popular post-graduate programs, however, I could not find any set application deadlines. Of course, there are an abundance of service programs to consider if you are seeking a shorter-term work experience post-graduation, including  Jesuit Volunteer Corps, Peace Corps, City Year, AmeriCorps, and many more.

All the best,
Jodi Schneiderman |
Assistant Director, Employer Relations and Industry Advising | Health, Science, and Technology

Don’t Flub the Soft Skills: Here’s How To Include Soft Skills on Your Resume

Source: Resume Worded

The goal to demonstrating soft skills, such as teamwork and communication, on your resume is to show, not tell. The author recommends staying away from listing skills in a skills section. Rather, the recommendation is to weave soft skills into your bullet statements. This article provides specific examples for numerous soft skills including teamwork, initiative, leadership, problem solving, organizational, communication, creative and design, conflict resolution, and attention detail.
