Dependable Strengths Workshop: Networking and Job Search

2 day workshop + one follow-up appointment
Friday and Saturday, June 11-12 - Register NOW!

Need answers to the big questions about where you are headed next?
Not sure what kind of job you are interested in or how to find it?
Are you graduating this year and lack the know-how or confidence to network?

This two day workshop helps you to do all of these! Unlike other career assessments and workshops, you'll be able to assess your strengths and identify what you enjoy, things that you do well and events or experiences in which you take pride. It motivates you to succeed. Ultimately by learning more about yourself through this process, you open up new opportunities.
The focus in this workshop is a non-traditional job search process. Through guided group discussions, participants will:

* Identify what you are good at and what you love to do
* Learn to articulate your worth to an employer
* Learn to make contacts whenever you may want them
* Succeed in interviews
* Work with a support team to increase self-confidence

The workshop is designed for all levels from freshmen to graduate students and alumni.
The registration fee for current UMBC Students is $50. Details and the online registration form can be found at

Old-School Job Hunting Techniques that Still Work

When you talk about finding a job, the biggest changes have come from technology. Once upon a time, you couldn't look at listings online; you needed a newspaper. You couldn't save 20 different résumés on your computer; you had to type each one out on a typewriter.

Technology has certainly made some tasks easier, but are job seekers relying too much on it? We asked some experts if they thought job seekers were doing themselves a disservice by ignoring some old-school techniques. While no one thinks you need to toss your online tools aside, they suggest you go back to the basics to boost your chances of getting the job.
