Interview with a Tiger: Tuesday, March 25th
Dress for Success Week kicks off with our great mock interview program. Students have signed up for practice interviews with recruiters from the business, legal, healthcare, advertising, social services, and arts industries. (If you missed the opportunity to sign-up, consider scheduling a mock interview with a CDC staff member by making an appointment through tigerlink.oxy.edu)
LinkedIn Workshop: Wednesday, March 26th – 3:00 in Fowler 112
Did you know that up to 80% of available jobs aren’t advertised and are only available through networking? Well now you know, and you therefore won’t want to miss the opportunity to learn how to create an impressive LinkedIn profile and successfully network with the over 10,000 Oxy alumni on the professional social media site.
Dress for Success Boutique: Thursday, March 27th at the Samuelson Alumni Center
(Times vary by class year: Seniors are welcome between 11:00 – 2:00, Juniors from 12:30 – 2:00, and Sophomores & First-Years can come by anytime between 2:00 – 4:00)
Take home FREE professional clothes donated to the college by your alumni community. Each student is allowed to take up to 3 clothing items home from the boutique, unless you participated in the LinkedIn Workshop or Interview With a Tiger – in which case you’ll have earned coupons for more clothes. You’ll find suits, dresses, ties, belts, dress shoes and more, all so that you’ll be prepared from head to foot for your next interview or the first day on the job.
LinkedIn Photo Booth: Thursday, March 27th from 12:00 – 1:30 at the DFS Boutique
Throw on that new button-up from the DFSW Boutique and snap a quick professional picture at the LinkedIn Photobooth. You’ll be guaranteed to make an impression on your new LinkedIn profile, and what better tool to break into the hidden job market then your own smiling face.
Prep for Industry Night: Friday, March 28th – 3:00 in Johnson 106
Plan ahead for SAM Night. Participants will hear insider information about the different recruiters attending the industry night, as well as networking tips and advice for navigating the event. As a bonus, any student who attend the prep session will be given the option to have FREE Oxy business cards printed for them to hand out at SAM Night.
Sales and Management Night: Monday, March 31st from 5:00 – 7:00 in Dumke Commons
SAM Night is our new annual industry night for employers to promote sales and management jobs or internships. At the program you’ll first get to hear from each of the 7 employers individually, and then have the opportunity to network with all the recruiters at their own career booths. Registered employers include: Translations.com, Enterprise, Vivint, Aflac, McMaster-Carr, Southern Wine & Spirits, and Nestle. You’ll hear about interesting opportunities and, after such a great Dress for Success Week, you’re sure to impress as well!
