Resume & Cover Letter Writing Assistance
All students will get the opportunity during their final semester to work side-by-side with a career services team member to craft a cover letter and resume that will catch an employer’s attention.
Already have a cover letter & resume? Let us review it and see how it stacks up given the current trends in employee recruitment.
Once you have a resume & cover letter that gets you interviews, you will also need to follow up. We can help you write thank you messages that stand out and give you tips to determine how to best get those messages to your interviewer—email, cards, or even via networking platforms.
Interview Preparation & Practice
The first step to career success is landing the job. Our Career Services team can show you how to present your most confident and polished self so you can do just that!
Our career services team, campus faculty and staff, and even employers offer mock interview sessions so you can practice answering frequently asked interview questions. Even better, you’ll receive feedback so you know how you rate.
Periodically, we host special speakers to discuss topics such as negotiating wages, benefits packages, PTO, and other perks; how to select the health benefits that best fit your needs; how maximize your employer sponsored retirement account; and more. See the Schedule of Events below for current offerings.
Job Search & Networking Strategies
Gone are the days of newspapers and highlighters as the tools for finding a job. Today you need to use search engines and establish a digital presence to find employers AND to help them find you.
Your resume isn’t the only tool you need to show employers that you are a strong candidate for employment. A robust LinkedIn profile can stand alone or compliment your resume to present yourself favorably to employers. And it’s very likely that employers will look at your other social media profiles too. We can help you leverage the appropriate content employers are looking at and identify the content that raises flags.
Then comes networking and job searching. Our career services experts can show you the ins and outs of navigating the most common platforms employers use for recruiting such as Indeed, ZipRecruiter, CareerBuilder, and Glassdoor.
Career Development Coaching
Learn about and develop the “soft skills” that complement the “hard skills” so you can thrive and advance throughout your career.
It should come as no surprise that those who are well liked by their peers tend to be reviewed more favorably and recommended by others for advanced roles and leadership positions. Understanding different personalities and learning how to work effectively with them goes a long way in the real world. Your own emotional intelligence, active listening, and other communication skills are powerful tools and can be learned.
Our career services team offers a series of presentations on these topics. Presentations will be delivered in your classrooms, but if you missed one by chance check the Schedule of Events below for additional opportunities.
Career Portfolio Development
The vast majority of people do not work in one position for the same employer for their entire professional life. As you gain experience, your resume, cover letters, professional networking profiles, and pool of references need to evolve too.
We help you with the technical details involved in keep your portfolio up to date and ready for the next opportunity. More importantly, our team of career services professional can provide insights on building, nurturing, and retaining relationships with colleagues. After all, those relationships will support the details in your portfolio.
Networking & Professional Relationships
Professional relationships extend beyond the immediate relationships you have with your co-workers. There is value in having professional relationships with who you may not have—or even ever—work directly with. These could be employment partners, researchers, vendors, or even your neighbor who works in an entirely different role in the field of healthcare.
Networking involves nurturing established professional relationships, developing new professional relationships, and leveraging those fringe professional relationships. These are all important relationships because you never know who somebody knows.
Our career services team can help you learn how to finesse relationships and network effectively.
Lifetime Job Placement Assistance
Our graduates have access to career services forever. And you can take advantage of these services through any of the colleges within the Unitek Learning Family of Schools.
