Job Corner with Ms. Whelton

What a busy couple of weeks with IR! There are still more career fairs happening in the fall that you should attend. First is the CE Career Fair. 
Civil Engineering Career Fair (Oct 12th in person) will be held at the CoRec. The CE Career Fair already has their information sessions penciled in the night of October 11th in Hampton Hall. Information will be updated here for the fair. This fair will mainly feature consulting firms and there will be many EEE alums present.
The Ag Fair is also on October 3rd at the CoRec from 9:30am-3:30pm. See who is attending here.  
I know your time is limited, so I always recommend attending IR and the Civil Career Fair in the fall. Go to the Ag Fair if you have time or you have a specific interest in working for ag companies.  
The CCO has resources that can help you in the job search. They can review your resume, give a mock interview, and offer workshops to aid you in the process of looking for employment.  They also have information sessions listed that are scheduled through CCO. Check here for all CCO related events on campus:    
I see that DC Energy is having a virtual info session on 9/21 at 10am, Toyota Day is on 9/18, go to the Indiana Statehouse Internship reception on 9/25 at 5:30pm to learn more about internships within the Indiana political parties, and the Renewable Energy Systems Americas info session on 9/28 at 5:30pm. Keep checking the CCO calendar for these and other events as it is continually updated. 
Did you know you can even practice your interview skills at the CCO?  You can schedule a mock interview through them.  This is a great way to practice your sales pitch!  You can schedule a mock interview Monday to Friday between 10am and 4pm here under “Undergraduates-Peer Mock Interview: You can also do an interview via Big Interview virtually here.
