Get ready to work with us soon! Joyce’s Career Tip of the Week

A student and recruiter talk at Career Fair

Welcome to all Fulton Schools Sun Devils — first time and returning students! We are delighted to have you on campus.

Even though the weather certainly feels like summer, it is the beginning of the fall semester. This means that employers will soon be coming on campus to hire students who will be graduating in December and May, as well continuing students for summer internships.

You have about a week to settle into your classes and then it will be time to prepare for the Fulton Schools Career Fairs.

This year, the Career Fairs will be Tuesday, September 12, 2017 for graduate students and Wednesday, September 13, 2017 for undergraduate students on the Tempe campus. The Fulton Schools Career Fair at the Polytechnic campus will be on Thursday, September 14, 2017.

The first of three Friday afternoon “Rapid Resume Reviews” by employers will be held on Friday, August 18, 2017. Peer Career Coaches will begin holding office hours for appointments next week, beginning Monday, August 21, 2017.

There is a new system for finding Career Event information and applying for internships and jobs: Handshake. If you haven’t checked it out yet, do not put that off any longer! Complete your profile and become familiar with this new resource.

You no longer have to call the Career Center to schedule appointments. You will be able to make appointments through Handshake!

All of us at the Fulton Schools Career Center are looking forward to working with you and wish you success in all that you will do this semester!
