Welcome Back Everyone!

Hopefully, everyone had a very eventful summer break. Did you have an internship that showed you what professionals in your chosen field really do? Did you take a trip to another country, experiencing another culture to its fullest? Or did you take classes to get ahead of the game in school? Well, whatever you did this past summer with any luck it was fun, relaxing, but meaningful in the grand scheme that is called life!

But now you are back to school and it is time to hit the books. Good luck during the next year. For those of you who are new to the school welcome to the city by the sea and the College of Charleston. A place where you will set down roots for the next few years and gain education and life experiences. For the returning students, welcome back! You know the routine, but remember things will be a little different. Some of you are getting into your major classes, or you’re joining a new club or activity. Or you’re entering your final year at the College of Charleston.

Here on the Career Center Blog we hope to help all of you, no matter your stage in the matriculation cycle. Over the next semester we will be discussing a wide range of topics. And if we do not talk about something you want to know tell us in the comments below. So hang in there for another year of career advice and discussion!

See You in the Fall!

We just made it through the first (academic) year of the Career Center Blog. Yeah! Since summer is here and most of you will be either spending your days at the beach, in a internship, or exploring new areas in summer classes the blog is going on semi hiatus, too. The blog will get back to its regular Monday schedule starting in August 2008 (though there will be surprise posts during the summer!).

But while we will not have new posts each week, please look through all of our old posts! We have a lot of information here that can get you on the right track in your career development.

Remember, if you have any questions or just want to comment leave us a message in the comments section.

Welcome Back Students!

It is time for another exciting year here at the College of Charleston. Is this your first year exploring this sea side college? Or are you in the midst of your collegiate journey? Or, are you beginning the last year before heading onto bigger things? Well, whatever your status here at the College welcome back and I hope you have a great year.

If this is your first time reading the Blog welcome as well. Here at the Career Center we are striving to help and inform you in the way of majors and careers. The world we live in is propelled by technology of all kinds and so we at the Career Center want to meet you in a common ground—the Internet.

On the Blog you will be able to read about issues you may be facing now or will so be facing. Issues including resumes, the job hunt, interviews, choosing a major, and so on. I hope you come back to learn more about navigating your way around the major/career decision process.

And please make comments and/or questions! We want your feedback. I want to know what you think about the different issues that will be featured on this site. Plus you may have the bit of advice for your fellow students that will help them succeed. So make a statement or question below.

Welcome to the New Career Center Blog!

Have you ever wondered what you really wanted to do with your life? Or are you preparing for that big interview or writing a resume? Are you lost in the job search process? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you are in the right place. It is our goal at the Career Center to help you find and realize your dream career.

In the Career Center we can offer you a lot of hands on assistance with the career decision process from deciding a major, searching for your dream career, writing those winning resumes, and shining in the interview for that part-time job, internship or full time position. Our website also offers a lot of different outlets to help you reach your goals. Try out some of our helpful links to get you started.

Now we bring to you our new Career Center Blog. Here we will be discussing some of those key elements in the career decision process, offering tips and places to go that will help you. On the blog we hope to feature topics that will help you succeed, advice from alumni or current students who are going through the same things you are, and we want your input. Make comments and share your own experiences as we explore the different elements of choosing and getting your dream job. You never have to go through the journey from school to careers alone.
