Making Connections with Employers

We're taking a break to recognize the Thanksgiving holiday, but will be back on Wednesday, November 28th with Guest Host Mark Babbitt from YouTern! Mark brings his expertise in career development and mentoring, and an interest in improving higher education's role in preparing emerging talent for the workforce.

We'll use the following questions to guide the discussion:

Q1: How can students balance their approach to the job search process (online and offline)?

Q2: What are best practices for networking, especially during a career transition?

Q3: How can students and job seekers improve their "online presence" with career development in mind?

Join us with your recommendations and questions for the group!
