With only five weeks left in the semester you may feel like things are wrapping up. Though it seems things are coming to a close, it’s not too late to take advantage of the events going on this fall! Career Services provides many opportunities to explore career paths, build a network, and find that internship and job so be sure to utilize all that is there for you.
This fall, there are still great events you can utilize! Always check out our event calendar to keep up to date on awesome opportunities like the upcoming November 4 Consulting Industry Lunch and Learn or the November 18 Upperclassmen Coffee Chat with BBA Career Services Director, Velma Arney.
What’s better is that fall is not your last chance! The spring has tons of cool events for you to take advantage of. In March 2016, look out for a new Austin Company mini-career fair where you can meet and greet professionals with startups and more in Austin. Also, in April 2016 there is a BBA Career Connection event, a just-in-time hiring event full of employers looking for summer interns and full time hires post grad.
As a McCombs student, you get access to the famous and coveted OCR as well as McCombs Job Board, and HireUtexas. OCR is of course great for traditional internships and full time offers. If you find you’re looking for something a little different, make sure to also check McCombs Job Board and HireUtexas.
BBA Career Services’ online resources, including all of the Instructional Guides (Networking Strategies, Job Correspondence, Interviewing Techniques, and more) are great for self-guided recruiting help. However, I highly recommend taking advantage of the one-on-one Career Coaching services. Each major has a specific Career Coach specialized to help you! We also have a team of Peer Coaches here for quick questions and resume and cover letter reviews; check out our walk-in hours.
Your time may be slowly coming to a close here, but be sure to utilize all that McCombs has to offer while it’s available!
