The Spring Internship & Career Fair is one week away! The fair will be held on Thursday, February 12, 12:30-4:30 p.m. at the Waco Convention Center, 100 Washington Ave.
*There will be round-trip shuttle service that will pick-up every 15 minutes behind Cashion Academic Center at 4th and Speight.
*A “LinkedIn” Photo Booth will be available for the first 400 students and alumni to have a professional profile picture taken for their LinkedIn profiles.
This fair will be our largest career fair to date with 156 organizations registered to attend with 375 total recruiters. The recruiters will share about entry-level career positions and internships. While some companies do seek specific majors, most companies are open to all majors. We encourage you to prepare for the fair in the next week-here’s how:
Student “to do” list before the Spring Job & Internship Fair:
- Research the attending companies (See who’s attending the Internship & Career Fair!)
- Log in to your HireABear account and schedule a mock interview with college recruiters February 6 and 11. A mock interview is one of the very best ways to prepare for an actual employment interview and it will help improve the way you present yourself. These 30-minute interviews are meant to be as realistic as possible. You will be asked interview questions that would be asked by actual employers.
- Bring several copies of your résumé (have it reviewed by a Career & Professional Development staff member prior to the fair). Résumé walk-in hours
- Practice your 30-second commercial. (See BearFacts pg. 23)
- Bring your student ID to the fair
- Dress for success (business casual dress required; professional dress recommended–no jeans, shorts, t-shirts, workout clothes)
Good luck in your internship and job search!
Don’t forget to stop by the University-Wide Majors Fair today to visit with representatives from a wide variety of Baylor majors and pre-professional programs.
Hope to see you there!
I hope your first week back or your first week here at Baylor is going well! One way to find meaningful community during your Baylor journey is by joining student organizations. Late Night is an event for students to meet representatives from over 200 organizations and learn more about the different opportunities to connect all over campus. Student organizations are also a great way to network and learn more about major and career fields you might be interested in. Be sure and take advantage of this great opportunity to learn about the options available at Baylor.
For those of you sticking around Waco this summer or looking to settle here full-time after graduation, consider an excellent opportunity tomorrow to look into employment possibilities. The Work in Waco Job Fair will showcase local employers from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Waco Convention Center on Wednesday, April 16th. Employment opportunities include internship, part-time, and full-time positions. Students are encouraged to pre-register, and a list of employers who will be attending is available on the Work in Waco website.
You likely haven’t experienced this level of anxiety about a test since the SAT or ACT. Join us for the final workshop in the Preparing for Graduate School workshop series to learn about the sections of the GRE® and different study strategies to help you earn an excellent score the first time. This session will take place at 4:00 p.m. today in Room 120 of Morrison Hall, and free pizza will be available after the presentation.
If you missed the previous workshops in our series, you can now access videos of these presentations on the Baylor Career and Professional Development website.
Have you ever wondered what program directors are thinking when they decide who gets into graduate programs and who doesn’t? As we learned in our first workshop, admissions committees take a holistic approach to evaluating candidates, meaning that there are many factors that contribute to admissions decisions. Join us at 4:00 p.m. today in Room 120 of Morrison Hall to hear directly from five faculty members about what they look for in top graduate program candidates. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn what to do to set yourself apart (in a good way)! As a bonus, stick around for free pizza at the conclusion of the workshop.
For many students, the question of how to pay for graduate and professional education is a lot more difficult to answer than whether or not they want to attend graduate school. When a student may already be facing loan repayment for their undergraduate degree, the idea of spending even more money for an advanced degree can be quite daunting. Join us this afternoon at 4:00 p.m. in Room 100 of Morrison Hall for the second in our Graduate School Workshop Series, “How Do I Pay for Graduate School?”
Mr. Amine Qourzal from Baylor’s Student Financial Aid Office will present on assessing the financial costs of attending graduate school, loans, and making smart financial decisions. Come learn about your options, and stay for free pizza after the presentation.
As an aside, students who are considering applying to graduate school have the opportunity from Kaplan to take free practice exams. Click here to read more about opportunities to take a practice MCAT, GRE, LSAT, PCAT, GMAT, DAT, or OAT.
Come brave the chilly weather today to attend the first session in our Graduate School Workshop Series. Students considering graduate school will learn about admissions criteria, how to select a program, and how to navigate online resources for comparing graduate programs. The workshop will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Morrison Hall, Room 120. Free pizza will be served at the conclusion of the presentation. We hope to see you there!
