Two Hidden Jewels on the Center for Career Development Website – UConn Center for Career Development

Before working at the Center for Career Development, I had only vague thoughts about the resources offered by the website. I knew I could make an appointment to talk to a career coach, and there were some sample resumes I could see online … but that’s just the beginning I didn’t know much. From a collection of over 70 career development videos to a mini-LinkedIn for UConn graduates, I think many students aren’t taking full advantage of all the resources offered by the Career Center. There are many more useful features, but today we’ll look at two.

1.1. On-demand career

This 72-video library is truly comprehensive. The basics of resumes, cover letters, interviews, networking, etc. are certainly covered in detail, but I’m confident that even the most experienced career professionals can learn new things with this archive. increase.from One-way interviewTo Social media brandingTo HandshakeTo Request recommendations, All Audiences Can Benefit From Career On Demand. The best place? You don’t have to limit yourself to learning at any particular time. They are up on the website now and will be up the next time you check, so feel free to listen and learn at your own pace.

2.2. Husky Mentor Network

This invaluable resource removes “work” from networking. For real. I recently used this to connect with UConn graduates working in the industry I want to pursue. All I had to do was answer a 10-minute quiz about my interests and career aspirations. I was in line with her because my career goals and her professional experience were compatible. We also agreed with other graduates who will be contacted in the near future. Not sure what to talk about or how to get in touch? The Husky Mentor Network presents topics that mentors can discuss, such as industry insights, resumes, interviews, and general career advice. It also streamlines messaging with sample prompts that you can use to start conversations. Remember that these are UConn graduates who wanted to serve as a resource. So it’s definitely worth a try.
