Welcome to Family Weekend

From Patricia Rose, Director of Career Services

Friday marks the beginning of Family Weekend, and many of you will have your family visiting.  Enjoy your time with them.  (Disclosure: I just returned from my son’s Family Weekend a few days ago; don’t underestimate how much your parents are looking forward to seeing you, and learning more about your life at Penn.)

If your parents arrive by Friday afternoon, please bring them to our Career Services Open House, which runs from 2:30 – 4:00 here in our offices (Suite 20, McNeil).  You and your family will have the opportunity to meet our staff, and learn how we can help you define your career goals and take the steps necessary to achieve them.  From 3:00 – 3:30 I will be making short remarks and taking questions in Room 287 McNeil, right off the elevators on the second floor of the building.  I will be giving a sneak peak at the results of our class of 2010 Career Plans Survey.  Find out how successful last year’s seniors were in finding employment and getting admitted to graduate programs.  (Hint: they had an easier time than the class of 2009.)

If your parents aren’t here, that’s okay.  Stop in anyway, either during the Open House, or at a time convenient to your schedule.  Schedule an appointment with a counselor.  Check out the resources in our career library.  We’re here to help you, regardless of your career ambitions or level of uncertainty about the future.    While this may be Family Weekend, every day is Student Day in Career Services.  We hope to see you soon.
