Your last year in college is one of transition. Of the many changes you will be making this year, one of the most exciting and challenging ones is moving from student to professional. The Center for Career Development hopes to make this transition as smooth and seamless as possible. The Seniors Only Series is a year-long program consisting of workshops, seminars, information sessions, alumni panels, networking events, and career fairs dedicated to helping our senior class begin their life after Drew.
Throughout the year, we will be bringing in speakers from various career fields (employers, alumni, and career professionals) who will discuss their career and the best ways to prepare for entry into that field.
Three times a year, we hold a Speed Networking event where current students have the opportunity to meet with Alumni from a variety of career fields and backgrounds. It is a wonderful way to begin to develop your professional network.
Job Readiness Workshops
The staff and special speakers present workshops throughout the year on résumé and cover letter writing, interview techniques, job search methods, and career fair preparation.
Held at the Faculty and Staff Dining Room, this event features a presenter discussing the do’s and don’ts of dinning etiquette during a special full-course dinner.
The Center has several alumni, executives, and career coaches who conduct mock interviews on campus. This valuable, professional experience will help you stand out from the crowd when you are interviewing for the real thing.
On-Campus Interview Program
Come to the Center for Career Development (UC-104) to find out which employers will be coming to campus to interview for internship opportunities and full and part-time positions.
WorkStyles Fashion Show
Facilitated by professionals in human resources, this fashion show features students dressed in professional (and not so professional) outfits for interviewing and working. Offered prior to the Career Fair, this event prepares students to dress effectively and appropriately for meeting with recruiters and HR professionals.
Tri-Collegiate Career & Graduate School Fair
Each March, Drew teams up with Fairleigh Dickinson University and the College of St. Elizabeth to present a tri-collegiate fair. Featuring employers from a wide variety of fields, as well as graduate school representatives, this Fair is an essential step in the job search process for seniors.
