Helping Gonzaga University Students and Alumni Clarify and Achieve Their Academic and Professional Goals

Service & Networking: A Perfect Combination

Does the idea of meeting alumni make you nervous? Do you worry about saying the right thing, or making the “perfect” impression?  How about meeting alumni in a fun way while helping a deserving non-profit?

If this sounds like a great solution, mark your calendars for August 14th as the Seattle Alumni Chapter has extended an invitation to current students as well as recent graduates for a service project.  This is a great opportunity to meet members of the Seattle Alumni Chapter, or what we would call networking.  (See, networking doesn’t have to happen in a business suit!)

The event will be at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle from 10-2 pm, in conjunction to EarthCorps.

To RSVP,  go here.

Space is limited, sign up today!

Welcome Class of 2014!

We are getting excited for New Student Orientation! During graduation, the Career Center asked Seniors to give some advice to the incoming Class of 2014. Curious what they had to say? Check it out! For GU Alumni, what advice would you give to a new Zag?

Launching a Career Through Twitter

Last summer I posted an article about what not to tweet after an interview.  Unless your privacy settings are amped up in Twitter, potential employers could easily find tweets you’ve made…and if those are negative, that isn’t a good place to be.

What about using the power of the little blue Twitter bird to help land you your next career?  CareerRocketeer has put together great tips and tricks for getting started within the world of Twittter.  Their article is super helpful!

Curious about where the leaders of job hunting resources are residing?  CareerRocketeer has put together a fantastic list of over 100 companies and industries represented on Twitter.   Great place to get started!

Make sure to bookmark the CareerRocketeer page as it’s full of great advice, articles, tips and more!
