Ro’s Answer

I am assuming by "school" you mean college. Most colleges have career service centers. The mistake I see students do is wait until Junior or Senior year to visit and ask about jobs. GO EARLY! Ask about internships, part-time jobs, and any other opportunities that they have for you to do during summer or even while you are taking courses. This way you will have some experience to put on your resume before you graduate. I work in the career services sector and see the huge benefit students receive by visiting early.

Here are some services that the Career Center at a school should provide:
-Job opportunities/placement
-Resume and Cover Letter assistance
-Interviewing practice
-developing your online network and personal brand

Hello Jessica,

Most schools do offer career counseling that includes assessments to access what the best career for you is. There are also counselor who can give tailored advice and direction based on what you are wanting for your future. Along with this, there are career fairs throughout the school year to allow students to obtain internships and jobs.

This includes advice on the kinds of careers that might suit your interest and skills, building resumes and online profiles, interviewing skills and providing assistance with mock interviews to help you prepare, as well as setting up interviews with companies looking to hire. You should take full advantage of such resources. Good luck!
