Jesuit Tradition

The University of Scranton takes great pride in being 1 of just 28 Jesuit universities in the United States.  In order to celebrate our Jesuit identity, several events are being held on campis this week.  Here is a complete schedule of activities for the week:

I really think that this is a great way for Scranton students to acknoweldge the Jesuit traditions of the University as well as be proud of being part of such an amazing and unique community.

With my second Level I fieldwork approaching this summer, I thought it was about time for me to make my way to the Career Services office to get some assisstance with creating a resume.  This turned out to be a great decision there.  Before today, I did not know much about Career Services and the many different things they offer several different programs and services.

On top of the many different programs the Office of Career Services provides, including individual career counseling and interview skills development, they also provide career development workshops throughout the year.  These workshops cover a variety of topics including resume writing, job search assistance and graduate/professional school application.

When I met with the Assistant Director, Elizabeth Rozelle, today she was nothing but helpful.  I showed her a draft of my resume that I had made and she went through each section and gave me corrections and suggestions to improve my resume.

The Office of Career Services is an excellent resource for students to have.  I encourage everyone, even if you are only a freshman, to stop by and become familiar with the many different services that are provided.  It’s never to early to start planning for your future!
