Career Coaching Office Hour

Join Jill Klees, the iSchool student and alumni career consultant, for a career coaching office hour. She’ll share job search questions from students like:

  • Is it OK if my resume is 3 pages? 
  • How soon is too soon to follow up on a job I applied for?
  • Do people still use an objective statement?
  • What does it mean when I’m applying for jobs but I am not hearing anything back?

 Bring your own questions, too. No career question is off limits. This will be an informal session with lots of tips and resources.
