Job Search Support Group

Are you a College of Arts & Sciences senior graduating in December or May? Have you started your job search? Would you like the opportunity to share your experiences with your peers?


If you are starting your job search or just beginning the process and would like some additional guidance and support during the process, join us for a unique opportunity to talk with your peers about the mistakes, pitfalls, fears, and successes of the job search. Sometimes talking with your friends is the best way to learn what works and what not to do. This group will cover the important pieces of the job search including resumes, cover letters, interviewing, and transition, but is also an opportunity to talk with people who are in the same position as you. You will get ideas and advice from your peers as well as support from the Arts & Sciences Career Services and trained counselors.


If you are interested in joining the group or have additional questions, please contact Alison Smith (

When: Wednesday for 5 sessions starting October 15 and ending November 12th , 5:30-7:00 pm
