Spring semester is here and arriving with it, right on schedule, is career stress. Every day students come in worried about everything from majors, internships, resumes, career goals, and advanced studies to their purpose in life.
How do students reduce this stress? By taking action, one small step at a time. Start that resume, learn about how majors and careers connect, or talk to one person about a career field. To help, Career Services has a full schedule of workshops and events, as well as a web site jam-packed with resources and job postings, and skilled professionals ready to meet with students to smooth the way.
This semester we welcome 2 new staff members–both UVM alumni. Lisa Torchiano will be offering career counseling and leading our alumni career programs, and Vanessa Santos Eugenio will be coordinating employer visits and managing our technology.
Here’s a quick list of some ways to get started. Watch www.uvm.edu/career for more, including events for specific career interests!
