Career Development Center hosts workshops

Chloe Sanfratello, Features editor

Have you been thinking about what you want to do after graduation? Where do you want to work or go in life?

Life comes at you fast and getting prepared to take that next step can be a stressful time for many.

Whether it is not knowing if you want to go to grad school or simply what kind of job you are looking for, it is important to have some kind of idea as to what comes next after you graduate.

The Mercyhurst Career Development Center is here to help guide everyone through that process. Their team has been developing a way to safely help students transition to life after college, especially in the current economic situation and job market.

By creating virtual workshops, the Career Development Center is coming up with many ways to help students succeed in life after Mercyhurst.

These virtual workshops are set to take place all throughout the beginning of the semester through the end of September.

At these workshops you can expect to learn how to create the perfect resume, how to write a cover letter, how to succeed in an interview, if graduate school is the right fit for you and how you can begin your job search.

Overall, these events will give robust knowledge for any future endeavors that will come after graduation.

The spread out nature of these events means that there will be many different things to learn about over time. These range from the internship process, graduate fairs and resume building sessions.

The best part about it is that all of these events are set to be virtual so there is no need to leave the comfort of your room. With everything being virtual, there is more time and opportunity to look deep into your future and to take action.

With a quick sign up to reserve your spot on Handshake, you will receive a login for Zoom, and everything needed to access the session.

It is important to try to always be prepared for what comes next in your future and that is exactly what the Career Development Center is trying to help students do.

Remember to reserve a spot on Handshake for whatever workshop is best for you.

In addition to these workshops the Career Development Center offers a lot of guidance for students. If you go to the Mercyhurst Hub, you will find many resources that will help develop an idea for your career, internships that you can get involved in, major change options and how to make appointments with Career Development staff.

There is also the option of career counseling. These sessions can be made by appointment through the Career Develoment Center.

Mercyhurst University is here to help you create a future that is worth working hard for.

Making sure students are prepared for their future through guidance is top priority. If you do have any questions or concerns regarding your career development, Heather Balas, Frank Rizzone, and Emma Kovacs are available to speak during office hours or by email for any remaining questions about your future.

Your future doesn’t have to be scary. Taking action now can help later in life when you are unsure of where to go.
