Taking a Tour

By Sharon Fleshman

Ok, so I’m not referring to a quick getaway to the Islands or even a great bargain on a last-minute trip overseas.  I’m actually suggesting that you take a “tour” of the Career Services website. (Gotcha!)  Based on our recent analysis of Career Services’ website use, it seems that many visitors find information by way of Google or some other keyword search.  While this is certainly an efficient way to go, it’s easy to miss valuable resources if you always take this approach.  Assuming you have some down time during the remainder of the summer, try to explore our website a bit more.   Admittedly, we have so much information, it may seem a bit overwhelming.  So just start somewhere, perhaps setting aside a little time each week to browse.

On the undergraduate side, a lot of our resources are useful across schools, though we also have some school-specific information.  On the graduate side, most of the resources are organized by school or academic program.   As you go along, take some “snapshots” by bookmarking web pages with resources that will be the most useful for you going forward.  And while you’re at it, do enjoy the last days of summer and get a little touring in (offline, of course).

Attention! Website Construction Underway!

The Career Services website is going to be under construction this week.

We’re updating our layout so that things will be easier to find. (Office hours and a Google map of our location on every page! And our phone number, too!)  We’re also combining our resources for undergraduates into one centralized place rather than dividing up resources by school, and on all pages the navigational links will change to be organized by audience.

In the meantime you may encounter some dead links, redirects, and inconsistencies throughout the site.  If you’ve bookmarked a page, you may need to correct the link.  We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you’ll excuse us for the week. By Monday the 23rd we hope to have everything running smoothly again.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at mylene@upenn.edu.
