Communicate 101Communicate 101: Resume & Cover Letter

Not sure if your resume or cover letter are standing out to employers? During this hands-on workshop, students will begin by learning the purpose of a resume and cover letter and understanding the elements that make these documents effective. After learning the basics, students will have the opportunity to begin drafting their resume or refresh content.

Communicate 201: Networking & LinkedIn

We all know that networking is the way to land a job or internship. However, networking can be scary and confusing. In this workshop, students will break down the myths and fears behind networking and gain concrete tips and tools to build a network, including My Hamilton Connect and LinkedIn.

Signature Programs

How I Got My Internship

These lunches, hosted every couple weeks, provide an opportunity to learn from a panel of fellow students. The student speakers summarize their experience, provide insight into how they got started, and  give tips and strategies for the industry in which they interned. Past topics have included education, sciences, finance, government, public health, communications, nonprofit, and business.

Linkedin Photobooth

This event, held a few times a year, gives students the opportunity to get a professional headshot taken, learn how to start or improve your profile, and how to leverage the LinkedIn platform. Students can also use this time to ask questions of Peer Advisors and Presenters and sign up for upcoming workshops and programs. This also serves as a low-key social event, so feel free to swing by to grab some food and chat.

Interview Crash Course

This event provides an opportunity for seniors to hear from a panel and participate in practice interviews with alumni, area business leaders, and members of the Hamilton community. During this intensive session, students practice answering common interview questions, receive feedback on their skills, and learn about resources and services to continue improving their interview skills.

In addition, the Career Center collaborates with other offices to host Networking Receptions, as well as Career Speakers and Panels periodically throughout the year.

Help us provide an accessible education, offer innovative resources and programs, and foster intellectual exploration.
