The whirlwind of the beginning of the year brings forth freshmen, book buying, Homecoming and getting back to the “grind.”
Between classes, social outings and homework, there has to be some time for you to rake in the big bucks (or at least minimum wage). At Eastern, there is a department specifically designed to help students score the job, University Advising and Career Development Center (UACDC).
The UACDC is commonly known as the department to help you with Academic Advising, but there are several more layers that are less known. The most helpful tool is the job search engine, EagleCareers.experience.com, Eastern’s very own Monster or Linkedin. On this website you can narrow your search to either part-time or full-time, what kind of work you’re interested in doing, and for both on-campus and off-campus employment.
You will also have the opportunity to electronically submit your cover letter and resume to employers through EagleCareers. Don’t have a cover letter or resume? Don’t know where to begin? There’s a solution or that, too! You can set up an appointment with a career advisor for resume reviews, mock interviews and job search strategies.
The world is at your fingertips, young Eagle! To begin you job search you don’t even have to get out of your pajamas. Many of these services UACDC provides are online. Get started today by visiting UACDC’s homepage at http://www.emich.edu/uacdc/students/.
