Career Coaching Office Hour

Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2019

Join me, Jill Klees, the iSchool Student and Alumni Career Consultant, for a career coaching office hour. I’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.
