As with any adventure, there are endless ways of experiencing the journey. Your career path experience has been and will be no different. Here's what our office suggests for assisting you along that path whether you're a first-time, full-time freshman, a transfer or an alum:
- Schedule an appointment or walk-in for a meeting so we can set up your permanent Career Services File. This file is kept for you through graduation (and later if you wish) and serves as a single point for collecting career related information on yourself in addition to what you will do on your own. In the file we include: the Career Services profile, the John Holland's Career Mosaic self-inventory, the Howard Gardner Multiple Intelligences self-inventory, your working resume and cover letter and any other pertinent information. We will also get your on-line Kuder Journey account started, which includes Kuder inventories, job searches, and a life long career e-portfolio. You can acquire your LMU access code from career services.
- If you don't have a working resume and general cover letter you should have one! But ask ten people how to write a resume and you'll get eleven answers! The truth is there are many ways and lots of people willing to help, but no two resumes will ever be the same due to differences in personalities, educational and professional experiences, and career intentions. Go to: Microsoft Office Online for some good template starters for resumes and about.com for Cover Letter guidance.
- Keep tabs on your job
experience particulars, organizational involvements,
and volunteerism so that at the end of each semester
or academic year you can come in and update your
file with us. By the time you're graduating,
applying for that internship, or happening across
that job, we'll have all that information ready to
compile with you.
