Career Success News

It’s not easy being a job seeker. There are resumes to perfect; contacts to network with; databases to scroll through; references to check on; cover letters to write…

It’s not easy being trans, non-binary and/or gender nonconforming. You are not sure if you should come out to employers; you are worried co-workers will express transphobia; you are mis-gendered in an interview…

It’s not easy!

However, there are resources and support out there to help your job search become just a little bit easier. You are not the first person to this and you won’t be the last! (These resources are also helpful for allies and family members to consider when supporting a trans person.)

  2. Coming out in the Workplace
  3. Tips for Allies
  4. Dress for Success! Look for trans and genderqueer friendly tailors such as Bindle and Keep featured in the new documentary “Suited” on Netflix. Visit the Stevenson University Career Success Closet to pick out a free outfit to help you feel confident when you land that interview!

This March 7th, the Office of Career Services will be partnering with the office of Multicultural Experience on the Diversity Career Expo.

Career fairs are essential for students who want to connect with employers and potentially secure a job position, or at the very least, get a job lead. Not only is it a great way to meet various employers in one place and learn more about the types of positions they offer, but meeting an employee at a career fair is a great way to learn about the company culture and values of the organization. It is guaranteed that you will learn more about the job and the organization at a career fair than you would from a short paragraph description in a job posting....Click here to read more.

As we begin a new semester here at Stevenson University, the staff of Career Services took some time to reflect on 2016 and make a list of the accomplishments we were most proud of in the last year. As an office whose primary goal is to serve students in reaching their career goals, you can usually find us in counseling appointments, meeting employers about potential jobs and internship opportunities, in class presentations talking to students about building their personal brands, or around campus hosting a variety of events, and developing new career content....

The semester is coming to a close, but before you pack up your bags and start thinking about the holiday break, make sure to check out some of the events that the Office of Career Services is hosting this month.

I went to a career fair, now what?!

Spring and fall semesters are a busy time for students and recruiters as there are so many career fairs, networking, and recruiting events. Last spring, just at Stevenson University alone, we hosted a multitude of events, from Careers in Sports, to the Maryland Career Consortium Fair and the Diversity Career Expo, Careers in Publishing and Beyond, Careers in Government, Careers in Law and finally the C3 Fair (Corporate and Community Connections Fair)...

PHEW! That's A LOT of networking.

So, you went armed with your resume, your 30 second commercial, your research on the companies that were in attendance, and of course you were professionally dressed, and had the perfect handshake and eye contact! But what do you do after the fair/event is over and how do you keep in touch with the recruiters or the representatives that you met with at these events?...
