SEASON FINALE. We’ve come to the end of another school year and another season of CS Radio. We’ve also come to the end of Pat Rose’s time as director of Career Services at Penn. We’re joined by an incredible array of guests who stopped by to reflect on Pat’s time at Penn and her contributions to Career Services. CS Radio will be back in September, but remember that Penn Career Services is open all summer long to both students and alumni. Thank you for listening and we’ll see you in season four!
It’s time for the spring grab bag! A little of this, a little of that, but all questions that we’ve been hearing lately in career advising appointments. Thank you notes, mistakes on an application, gearing up for a move, we’re going to cover all of it this week on the penultimate episode of the season! Enjoy!
Unsure what to wear to an interview? An info session? The first day on the job? Just what is business casual anyway? Fashion is ever changing and the rules about what is appropriate business attire not only changes over time, but from company to company. This week, Michael and Mylène (well, mostly Mylène) try to answer as many questions as is fashionable in a thirty minute podcast! Plus, we take a quick look at the ways Career Services can help those who are in need get new work clothes for free. Enjoy!
Still looking for a summer internship or research opportunity and feel like everyone you know already has their plans figured out? Don’t worry. Depending upon your areas of interest, there are still many fantastic summer opportunities out there.
Hiring timelines vary widely by industry. While some sectors hire early in the fall, others prefer to search for interns closer to the summer. If your interests include opportunities with non-profits, in healthcare, marketing, research, arts, film and more, you are in luck. Now is a great time to be looking! In fact, right now there are over 3600 active internship listings in Handshake.
