“The career center is a resource that students and alumni should take advantage of,” Fortson said.
Exciting opportunities for students lie ahead in the next month through the Career Center.
“These events give our students an advantage to get a head start in the race to find a job and also become more marketable in the future,” Fortson said.
Upcoming Career Events through October:
Students are encouraged to take advantage of the events scheduled next month.
A LinkedIn photo booth and mock interviews will take place every month this semester.
“The headshots are free photos for students’ LinkedIn profile,” Fortson said. Fortson said that students should look into LinkedIn as a social media tool that connects them to employers.
Fortson said that because of resources like the Career Center ACU students are more prepared to enter the job market in comparison to students from other universities.
“It is clear that the resources available to the students at the career center have been very beneficial,” said Fortson.
Fortson said connections are more than possible at ACU.
