Career and job search workshop for Arts students
Did you know that an Arts degree can lead to thousands of different jobs – and that your ideal "career" is really a combined product of who you are and the education and experience you have? Did you know that the more industry-related experience you gain through volunteering, part-time work and summer jobs, the more likely you are to catch the eye of a potential employer or grad school?
With that in mind – in collaboration with the Arts faculty – Career Services will be offering a workshop specifically for Arts students:
