Regis.edu sat down with Career Development Specialists Katie McCue and Eliza Bennett to fill us in on five ways the Center for Career and Professional Development goes beyond resume writing.
1. Getting Started "Students and alumni often come in to talk about career exploration. We are here to talk. We offer support even if you don’t have anythingtangible to review. Our drop-in hours are Monday through Thursday 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. and we’re available by phone call, Skype and in person.” -Eliza
2. Career exploration “We administer career assessments and self-exploration tools. We even run a two-credit vocational discernment course, PC220 College,Careers and Your Future, offered to Regis College students.” -Katie
3. Making the connection “We can help with identifying networks you might not even know you have. We guide you on how to set up informational interviews — 1 in 12 informational interviews leads to landing a job.” -Katie
4. Events and workshops “We bring employers to campus for career fairs, events and workshops. Look out for career fairs held specifically for your field. We offer health care, accounting and finance and marketing fairs.” -Eliza
5. Job Board “CareerLink is a valuable, yet underutilized resource we have that connects Regis students and alumni with employers. Postings are exclusive topeople within the Regis community. You’re not competing with everyone in Denver.” –Katie
