Student Employment and Career Services is hosting Career Power Workshops at 12:30 to 1 p.m. every Thursday during the summer in Main Building, Room 1G7.

The workshops will cover important topics such as creating résumés and cover letters, internships and how best to approach an interview, said Debra Vaughn, Student Employment and Career Services director.

“We chose these workshops to present over the summer because these are the subjects students ask about the most, and that best represent the services we offer,” Vaughn said.

Vaughn said she believes the workshops will help students become strong candidates for jobs.

The workshops will be presented by Vaughn and the rest of the staff in the Student Employment office, she said.

Bethany Lang, psychology major, who works in the Communications Lab, said she hears about many of the workshops and brown bags, and likes going to them.

“I think they’re really helpful to students, especially résumé creation,” Lang said. “That’s always tricky once you sit down to do it.”

The workshops will be presented in a lecture format, Vaughn said, with a question-and-answer session after the lecture.

Kiecharita Woods, radiology major, said she attended a few workshops in the spring and would like to go again if her class schedule permits.

“The things they teach always apply, especially topics like résumé building and career exploration,” Woods said.

Students who are unable to attend the workshops are encouraged to visit the Student Employment and Career Services offices for help, Vaughn said.

“Please call us or come by,” Vaughn said. “We’re always happy to talk to you.”

Student Employment and Career Services is located on the first floor of the Main Building, next to Student Life.
