CS Radio – Episode 78: “Break For It!”

We made it! It’s the last episode of the semester and the last episode of 2018! Winter break is the ideal time to decompress, relax and connect with friends and family. It’s also a good time to do some simple, even fun things to prep for a springtime career search.  Thank you for listening and we look forward to speaking with you again when we return in mid-January of 2019! Happy holidays!

CS Radio – Episode 77: “Destress Before Finals”

There’s just two episodes left in 2018! When the semester winds down, stress levels tend to rise up.  Mylène and Michael discuss all the resources on campus and across the city that can help you decompress as we head into that final push.  Enjoy!

CS Radio – Episode 76: “A Link(edIn) to the Past”

This week, we’re happy to announce the return of an annual tradition: the Career Services LinkedIn Photobooth! With that event now on the calendar, Michael and Mylène take a look at the basics of setting up a LinkedIn profile, some tips and tricks helpful to undergraduate job seekers on LinkedIn and the benefits of joining groups.  Also, information on this week’s Nursing Career Day.  Enjoy!
