September Is CSS Kick Start Month

The fall season is often a time for new beginnings and getting a fresh start. 

 The Center for Student Success (CSS) is excited to start the fall 2013 term with “CSS Kick Start,” a series of specially scheduled webinars during the month of September to support your academic and career success!

 The Career Services Center will offer three “CSS Kick Start” webinars on September 10, 11 and 12:

 1. Career Opportunities in Human Resources on Tuesday, September 10 from 5 – 6 p.m. EDT

Are you exploring careers in Human Resources (HR), transitioning into the HR field, or seeking to advance in your current position? Join Career Services and Management faculty as we discuss HR career options, trends, and growth areas.  We will share proactive strategies including building experience, expanding your network, and actively engaging in professional development activities to maximize career success.

2. Engaging with LinkedIn on Wednesday, September 11 from 5:00 to 5:45 p.m. EDT

 Are you looking to take your LinkedIn profile and connections to the next level?  Becoming an actively engaged member will help get you noticed.  In this session, you will learn strategies to leverage your network connections through engagement to promote your brand and uncover opportunities. 

 We will review 30 minutes of content, followed by 10-15 minutes of Q & A.  Please join us to learn how we can help you optimize your LinkedIn brand and connections to reach your career-related goals!

 3.  OptimalResume Series: Resume Builder on Thursday, September 12 from 5 – 5:30 p.m. EDT

 Whether you are crafting a resume for the first time or you are a resume pro, the Resume Builder is easy to use and provides 100+ resume samples.  During this session, we will provide tips to create a tailored resume and walk you through the steps of using the Resume Builder.

 Please note:  If you have accessibility concerns about any of these webinars, (e.g. you’ll need closed captioning or other support), please contact at least 10 days prior to the session.  We hope you are able to join us!   If you are not able to participate, this webinar will be archived on the Career Services Center website.

Hope you participate in CSS Kick Start offerings from Career Services, the Library, the Writing Center and Academic Skills Center!  Have a great start to your fall season!
