Rest, Refuel, and Come Back Revived!

As the semester comes to a close, we are bombarded with finals, finals, finals. But don't stress ... we're in the homestretch! 

After the close of the semester, comes the holidays. Who's ready? There is a lot of preparation that goes into planning for the holidays, one being gift giving. As much as we all desire to provide our loved ones with beautiful, extravagant gifts - we sometimes cannot afford to do so; this is when having a student status is tough!

What are some things we can do to maximize our budget and splurge on those great gifts?

Perhaps the most challenging but most rewarding and secure option is getting a job! Now, you may panic at that thought alone but don't fret - at the Center for Career Development, we are here to help! 

This winter break should be a time of rest, rejuvenation, and reflection. Hopefully, it will be this way for all of you! When you get back to school, however, it is time to jump in and seize the opportunities ahead! What might these opportunities be, you ask?

  • For starters, look into potential internships. At the Center for Career Development, we offer a paid summer internship experience in the non-profit sector called the Community Fellows Program. The application is now open and closes on March 2, 2015. Application instructions can be found on our website:

  • Lastly, reboot and connect! Clean up your resume, update your LinkedIn profile, and professionalize (or at least make private) your social media accounts.

From the Center for Career Development to you, Happy Holidays! We truly wish you all a wonderful holiday filled with peace, love, and cheer. And remember, rest up because next semester is the time to get involved!
