Career-A-Palooza!

Most of us imagine what our careers will look like after we graduate—some in more detail than others. Some students have every last detail of their future jobs planned out. Others have a vague idea of what they want to do with their lives, but they never really took the time to legitimately determine what exactly they wanted to do and/or how to go about it.

Amy Dittmer: the incredible person responsible for Career-A-Palooza!

I fall into that last category. Luckily for me, William Woods University has been there to help me determine what my career aptitudes are and how to go about preparing to search for a job. This last week, WWU hosted a series of LEAD events called “Career-A-Palooza” designed to help students learn the tricks of the job market trade.

 

Amy Dittmer is the director of career services and student transition at WWU. Basically, that means that her job is to help students like you and I find jobs! She hosted each of the events this week, focusing on current relevant topics such as how to build a resume and write a cover letter, how to specifically tailor your resume and cover letter to the job you are applying for, and how to use LinkedIn to your networking advantage.

 

Almost every college and university has someone like Amy who is supposed to help the soon-to-be graduates find work, but William Woods University is the only school to provide events on this important topic that students can receive financial scholarships from attending. That’s the incredible thing about WWU; everyone here really goes above and beyond to help us, the students, succeed. It is truly amazing to get to be part of such an incredible support system!
