Career Services and You

by: Kailyn Lowry

Every year career services acts as a vital resource for students at DSU to link their skills to appropriate internships and employment opportunities. Career Services offers assistance in resume help, through interview processes and job searches.

Events like campus interviews and workshops are all held by career services throughout the year. The office of Career Services is located in the MLK student center, room 333 and open from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Students can also find a schedule of events with locations held by Career Services posted to our DSU website. One key way that career services provides assistance is through hosting career fairs for the students of DSU.

Students can attend career fair events to gather information on potential internships and employers. With the assistance of career services, a student can prepare for a career fair by having their resume on hand and execute an on-the-spot interview if needed.

DaVontay Phillips is a student worker in the career services office. He shares with the Hornet, “I assist my supervisors with anything they need and I am the alumni mentor coordinator.”

DaVontay’s responsibilities vary by event and assistance needed; but he also mentioned that career services is a great resource to learn to “properly ace an interview and how to properly conduct yourself in front of employers.”

It’s more important than ever to ensure that college graduates are equipped with the knowledge to make the most of their degrees. Career services teaches invaluable lessons when it comes to what to expect in the “real world” and gives students the tools they need to thrive in the workplace.
