Trying to figure how to apply for jobs, dress for an interview or how to format your resume can be an intimidating task. Making a mistake can cost you an interview or even a job offer.
Most college students feel lost and overwhelmed when it comes to preparing for their career. Most don't know where to go to find help or guidance. Luckily, Auburn has their Career Center to help prepare you for your future career!
Auburn's Career Center offers a wide variety of services to Auburn students. One of the most helpful services in the resume review. Students can walk into the career center and have their resume reviewed and edited by someone for free. This is helpful for students who are beginning their job search and are unsure of how to format their resume. Students who don't have time to walk-in can email their resume to the career center for editing. Their resume, along with a video, will be sent back to the student telling them how to format and edit their resume.
The Auburn Career Center holds multiple job fairs throughout the school year. They feature employers from around the country who are looking to hire Auburn students directly. Even if there are no companies you are interested in at the fair, the career fair serves as great practice for future opportunities.
In addition to holding career fairs to help you find an employer, the Auburn Career Center posts jobs and internship postings on Handshake. Handshake can be found on AU Access under the My Campus tab. Handshake allows you to search for a job or internship with ease by allowing you to narrow it down to industry and location. You can also favorite companies and get alerts when they post an open position.
Handshake also tells you if you qualify for the position. In the corner of the listing, it will say if you meet all, some or none of the employer qualifications. This makes it easier for students who are trying to figure out if they truly qualify for the position.
Finally, the Auburn Career Center now offers a Campus Career Closet for students. The closet offers attire such as blazers, skirts and button-down shirts for free to students. The attire is perfect for interviews, job fairs, and networking. The Auburn Career Center is a great service that is offered to students. Make sure you take advantage of all the services the center has to offer.
