The Career Development is back in full gear for the start of the 2012-2013 school year! We would like to take the time to say we hope you all had a great summer and are enjoying your classes thus far. Bellarmine students represented our great school this summer through internships, job opportunities and studying abroad and you too can have those opportunities if you come visit the Career Development located on the second floor of Horrigan hall.

This year the Career Development would like to welcome a brand new pilot program starting this fall called. Ann, Todd and myself have interviewed and selected 7 wonderful candidates that will be at the students disposal regarding Resume critique, cover letter revisions, networking, Career Development workshop promotions, Internship and job opportunities and so much more. We would like to welcome Ann Marie Doran, Tyler Wobbrock, Wes Scott, Katie Dorminey, Sarah Perry, and Sara Williams. These career peers will be located through out the campus on a weekly basis available for students to talk to and ask questions regarding Resume’s, etc. Training starts soon and we will have their bright and shiny faces out and about as soon as possible! We plan on publicizing their locations and times in the Daily Knight to allow students to know their hours. We feel that this will be a great way to get more students involved with the Career Development, as it is a necessary program for all students whether you are a freshman or a senior.

We have a lot of Workshops that are raring to go starting with Dress for Success tomorrow from 5pm-6pm in Hilary’s. Not sure what to wear to a company information session, employment interview or office visit? Look your professional best with advice from experienced fashion and image consultants from Brooks Brothers. Clothing, accessories and grooming for men and women will be discussed. Even if you already have your act together, you are sure to learn something new! Co-sponsored by Delta Sigma Pi Business Fraternity and the Bellarmine University Accounting Association.
