Student studying for exam

6 ways to advance your career search this fall

Even though students won’t experience their normal on-campus classes this fall, there are still many ways for students to advance their career search. Warrington’s Business Career Services office continues to put together engaging opportunities for students to learn more about how to get a job after graduation. Here’s how:

Career appointments

Warrington students still have access to appointments with their career coaches or CAP mentors. Freshmen should work virtually with a CAP mentor this semester and all other students should work with their career coach through HIREWarrington. Graduate students should work with their career coach for advice and future planning.

These appointments provide students with an opportunity to learn more about available opportunities, bounce ideas off someone who specializes in the area, and have all of your questions answered about the job search. To find out who your Business Career Coach is, click here.

Career Fairs

Even though some in-person events aren’t an option this semester, students will have no shortage of opportunities available. Career Showcase (September 21-24) and the Gator Graduate Business Career Fair (September 18) will be open to students. These events will still provide students with the opportunity to find their full-time job or their summer internship.

Gator Ready

Gator Ready is your portal to career readiness for undergraduate students. The app allows students to develop their story by tracking how they developed the necessary skills for future opportunities. Students can download the app, powered by Suitable, here. It’s a great way to ensure you are ready for your next big professional opportunity.

Information sessions

Companies will still host information sessions for Warrington students. While they won’t take place in their normal format, virtual information sessions will still give students an opportunity to learn about companies and how they can fit as interns or as full-time employees.  Check out HIREWarrington for the latest employer events!

Student organization

One of the best ways to develop professional skills is to get involved in a student organization. You’ll meet likeminded students, learn with them as you better the organization, and develop a skillset that will help you stand out in interviews. As you build your network, you’ll also be preparing yourself to become a better employee through team building and working together to better your organization.

Training events

Events like Warrington Career Week (September 21-24) will help sharpen your skills before you speak with an employer. These events will take place virtually this year, but you’ll still have the immersive experience that will make you a better business professional. You’ll hear from corporate executives in different industries and be able to ask questions about their companies.

These events are intentionally designed to prepare you for the fall recruiting season. You’ll learn about specific companies and industries, but you’ll also learn more about yourself and what you should be asking in interviews.
