I’ve always found February to be one of the busiest months of the year. Perhaps it’s because February is the first full month of school after the winter break, or maybe simply because it’s the shortest month of the whole year. Regardless of the reason, February is now upon us and there is a lot to think about.
For those of us who are facing the last semester of their program, February brings the added stress of the job searching process. While the job search may seem confusing and incredibly daunting, arming yourself with the correct tools and knowledge can make all the difference.
First things first. When, for example, was the last time you updated your resume? If you have to stop and think about it, that probably means it needs to be revised. However, there are innumerable tips and tricks people swear by when it comes to crafting a resume. All this advice can make the job even more confusing. One page only or a complete view
of your employment history? A standard or creative font
? Putting the full date or just the year
next to the various positions? Trying to navigate all these aspects can be frustrating and, while some advice is better than others, focusing all of your attention onto these aesthetic details can make you overlook some really important content issues.
In the meantime, on February 18th you should come see us as DCE hosts the Fort Collins Chamber Commerce Business After Hours event! There will be music and refreshments, and Cam the Ram will be there! For free tickets, check out CSU’s Distance and Online Education Facebook page
We hope to see you there!
