With graduation approaching, the Career Center is currently hosting events that attempt to aid students with their future endeavors. On April 22 and 23, students brought in their resumes to future employers in an event called Resumaniac, where they were given advice on how well they are selling themselves to employers.
This was not the first time this event was held. The Career Center holds Resumaniac every two quarters and the event is open to all students, regardless of their year. Students had to register to have their resumes reviewed by professionals that visit the campus to help students with their resumes.
“These employers were here to review students’ resumes and give them the inside buzz words and an idea as to what they look for in resumes and interviews,” said Career Center Director Tom Munnerlyn. “These same employers will be at the Career Fair.”
More than 200 students that attended the event and almost all were Engineering students. Munnerlyn said these were good numbers.
“It was packed. Actually, we had all the chairs in this room set up, but we still had to go outside and set up chairs because there were so many students,” said Munnerlyn.
Resumaniac goes hand-in-hand with the Career Fair, which is going to be held on April 29 from 10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. The Career Fair is an event in which students can speak with potential future employers from 185 organizations, some non-profit and for profit.
“It’s a great opportunity for students to get to network and talk to employers,” said Munnerlyn. “Even if students don’t graduate for another year or two or are looking for summer internships, they can still come by Resumaniac or go to the Career Center at any time for some help.”
Past events the Career Center has hosted this quarter included the Clothes Closet, in which over 100 students were in attendance and the workshops held in Library week.
Another event the Career Center is holding on April 29 is the Senior/Alumni Networking Employer Breakfast. This breakfast is held from 8:30 a.m.-10 a.m. At the breakfast, students will have the opportunity to have breakfast with employers before the fair.
If students missed out on Resumaniac, there are still other workshops the Career Center holds. Anyone can come in with their resume and get help with interviews anytime.
