Getting Started

Depending on a student's grade level, there are different ways to utilize the Career Services Center:

Freshmen should consider a self-assessment process. That includes examining interests, values and abilities. Freshmen should schedule an appointment with Career Services to take the "Do What You Are" program, which will help determine these areas. Students will then be counseling as to what they have learned and what choices they have for a major.

Sophomores should begin a credential file with Career Services. They should also get to work on a resume and get involved with campus life, such as student organizations and clubs. Sophomores should also declare a major and plan their curriculum with an academic adviser. Those having trouble choosing a major should visit the Career Services Center and take the "Do What You Are" program.

Juniors should be well on their way toward finalizing a resume. This is the time to attend workshops on resume-writing, interviewing, writing cover letters, networking and graduate schools. Juniors may also take elective courses that will broaden their academic horizons, thereby expanding their employment opportunities.

Seniors should plan to attend Spotlight: Job and Internship Fair, a career fair held each spring in Lexington, Ky that is attended by various employers from Kentucky and the Southeast. Sponsored by the Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities, this event is offered only to students enrolled in Kentucky's independent colleges. Spotlight on Employment is one of the best opportunities seniors will have to meet with many companies' representatives in one setting.
