Career services is available to all Reeves College students
March 25, 2013 – Calgary AB – Making it to graduation day may seem like the hardest part of going back to school, but the real challenge comes when you’ve said goodbye to the classroom and set out on your first job search. Reeves College knows your new skills will help you find a career you’ll love, and we want to make sure you have all the right resources to make it happen as soon as possible.
Start your job hunt before you’ve finished school. When time is given to you in class to do research on jobs, use it. Really take the time to think through where you want to work and learn as much as you can about those companies. It will help you make the best first impression possible when you land your interview!
Take the time to learn the ins and outs of Optimal Resume. Not only do you have access to it as a student of Reeves College, you continue to have access to it after graduation. With tons of different resume and cover letter templates for you to try, Optimal Resume helps you to tailor your applications to each job you apply for. And, the video resume feature will help you stand out from the competition and help employers get a better look at who you really are.
Each campus has a Career Services department on hand as well, ready to answer any questions you may have. Nervous about what to say during a job interview? They’ll help you through it. Uncertain what you should wear on your first day of work? Career Services will give you tips! These career professionals are on hand to make things easier for you, so definitely take advantage.
One thing that students sometimes forget is that while a job search may not automatically lead to a new job, it does provide you with the opportunity to network with a lot of new people. Make sure you make a good impression with employers you meet and keep in touch with them even if you don’t get hired. While you may not be qualified right away, they may have the perfect job for you down the road. Add contacts to LinkedIn, and always remember to send a thank you note to anyone who has taken the time to meet with you.
