Graduate School: Dressing the Part

While most of us are aware that appropriate dress is a must for any interview, many of us fail to consider how our day-to-day attire influences our professional image.  This can be particularly true for new graduate students who may be inclined to dress in the same manner they did in undergrad.  Whether we like it or not, our personal appearance plays a role in how we are perceived by our professors, colleagues, classmates, and especially our students. Marquette graduate students might consider the follow tips from @kdshives via Inside Higher Ed to help make positive impression in Dressing for Battle: Academic Armaments .

Employers are excited to meet you!

Summer is slowly winding down which means on-campus recruiting will start very soon. On-campus recruiting includes job and internship postings, on-campus interviews for jobs and internships and career fairs. It's not too early to start thinking about your job search.
Did you know?
-Most employers would like to complete their hiring for next summer by the holidays. Unfortunately most students do not know about this until it's too late, so we want you to be ahead of the game!
-It can take 6-9 months to find a job, so it's never too early to start.
Here are 3 things you can do now to make sure you are prepared and don't miss out on these great opportunities!
1- Make sure your MU Career Manager is activated with a current resume. All undergrads now have an MU Career Manager account so this is easy!
2- Search on MU Career Manager to apply for job and internship postings and request on-campus interviews for jobs and internships.
3- Make an appointment with a career counselor to talk about your internship/job search. We are open Monday-Friday and are here to help!
