I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty worried about getting a job once I graduate from Stony Brook. Being a journalism major the prospectives are difficult if not bleak. But, hey, nowadays, with the crisis going on, journalists are not the only ones that are facing tough professional times. So, what to do? Start by using all of the resources available on campus. The best place? The Career Center.
They offer great tools to help you in that difficult process of getting a job. From helping you write your resume to job fairs. As a matter of fact, there are a couple of upcoming fairs worth taking a look at. The first, which will focus on job and interships on the IT, Engineering and Science fields will be held on September 23 from 12 pm to 3pm in the SAC Ballroom A & B. The other one, held specially for Business, Communication, Counseling, Health and Non-profit, will be done on October 14 from 12pm to 3pm in SAC Ballroom A&B.
Now, to one of my favorite tools on the Career Center website. The Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) 2008-09 edition. This is basically a site where you will find any job (taxi driver, nursery teacher, journalist…) and everything related to it: what the job entails, what kind of companies will hire you, what’s a day in such a job like, how many people are in this profession, how much money you will make, etc.
So, if like me, you’re worried about the future…check out the Career Center website. It’s never too late to start looking
