New career handbook: A zillion bits of advice in one place
Coursework Stories | Nov 26, 2012 | Nicole Gesualdo
You wake up at 6:45 a.m. to get ready for a job interview, and you realize you aren’t quite sure what to wear or what to bring.
It’s too early to call your friends, who might not know anyway.
The Personal and Professional Development staff isn’t in the office yet.
You definitely can’t call the firm to ask.
Enter the career search handbook.
Gabelli School students now have a multi-topic, round-the-clock online resource for all matters related to getting an internship or job, written and/or compiled via the Personal and Professional Development Center. It’s right here on GabelliConnect: To find it, mouse over “Career Search Handbook” under the Careers menu above. You’ll see that there are seven main topics that expand into pages of further detail.
You also can just click here.
The handbook is not meant as a replacement to the in-person help you can get through the Personal and Professional Development Center or the university-wide Career Services office. It is, however, a great supplement. It also can help you make the most of the meetings you have with PPDC staff or your class dean. Read a few relevant sections first. Then come to your appointment. You’ll have the basics out of the way, allowing your one-on-one time to focus on the finer points that’ll distinguish you from other candidates.
We hope this is a helpful resource for all of you!
