There’s a lot going on in the Job & Career Education Center these days. First of all, the Job Club is meeting from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM today.
What does it take to be successful in your job search? Many experts believe that being part of a group can help. Exchange ideas and offer support to other job seekers during this informal time of networking. As a Job Club member you can share employment experiences, advice and encouragement while participating in discussions and activities geared towards helping you achieve your career goals.
