70-80% of job opportunities are never posted online. So how do you reach them? To be competitive, you’ll need a strategy. You’ll accelerate your career journey with an individualized plan, including resumes and professional branding, to make sure your time and energy is used most effectively. Be sure to get out and explore your city too—off-campus networking, societies, and internships are all invaluable experiences.

What is personal branding and why is it important?

It’s how you’re known or thought of by other people. It’s an important tool to use when presenting who you are, what you can do, and why people should want to work with you. When you’re able to showcase the “why” and “how” in your story, it adds authenticity, which is interesting to employers.

You make a great new connection—what next?

Understand your mission—what do you want out of this new relationship? The follow-up is important as it sets the tone and encourages a mutual exchange of information. Ask open questions, be insightful, and show them what you know. It’ll lead to a more meaningful conversation.

How did the careers team help you prepare for the working world?

The job market is extremely competitive. You need to understand what makes you special, and that’s what the team helped me accomplish. From advice on building a resume to sharing communication strategies, they were supportive and instrumental in helping me to build my story.
