During the January break, the academic deans and Judith Monachina (Career Counselor) will offer an intensive seminar to help students identify and apply for competitive internships and summer jobs. The Competitive Internships Seminar will be held on January 16, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and will include sessions dedicated to every aspect of the internship/job search. Each participant will leave with a set of skills and job search tools, and a plan for making applications to particular internships. Of course, these skills will be useful in their future job search efforts as well.
The goal is to help BCC students take advantage of competitive internships and special career oriented programs, opportunities that require strong, thoughtful applications, often with early deadlines (January-March). In this seminar each student will:
• Research and identify specific internships/jobs;
• Develop a spreadsheet to organize their applications, with deadlines;
• Draft cover letters and resumes;
• Practice interviewing with area human resources professionals;
• Learn about interview etiquette and protocol;
• Hear about how their social media can be helpful and harmful in the search;
• Share a delicious lunch;
• Learn about the experiential learning opportunities available to them here at BCC.
There is a simple Statement of Interest form to complete, and you can learn about that form and the seminar by calling Judith Monachina (236-1611) or stopping at her office in Student Development (SBA).
NOTE: Participation in this Seminar will count as one TRIO Talk.
A representative from Elms College will be available to meet with prospective students on Thursday, November 29th from 10:30am-1:00pm in the Cafeteria.
