Spokane Trek Week

Hey, Zags! We’re gearing up for Spokane Trek Week October 14-17 and we hope to see as many of you there as possible! For those of you who don’t know, Spokane Trek Week is a week full of activities including speed mock interviews, an Engineering Career Fair, an All Major Career Fair and Spokane Trek Excursions including networking events and trips to local businesses.

The Spokane Trek is the exact same experience you would have on our New York, San Francisco, Portland or Seattle treks – except you get all of those same experiences right here in your own backyard! It’s never too early in your college career to start researching new employers or industries or to experience career development.

First things first – let’s talk dresscode. While, yes, Spokane Trek Week is during a school week and we understand that students have classes throughout the day, we highly encourage students to dress in their business finest. Imagine you’re going to your dream company to interview for your dream job. At the Spokane Trek Week events, you’ll be meeting potential employers, so you’re going to want to look your best. Guys: While jackets aren’t required, they’re definitely recommended. But slacks, a button-down, tie and dress shoes will do just fine as well. Girls: No bare legs, please! No lowcut tops, either. We recommend a blouse and either a cardigan or blazer paired with either tights + a skirt or slacks. Believe us when we say: it may feel silly to dress up and wear business clothes in class, but when you get the internship or job of your dreams, you’ll thank us!

The first event for Spokane Trek Week is the Speed Mock Interviews on Monday, October 14 from 5:30-7 PM. Speed Mock Interviews provide an excellent opportunity to meet with employers one-on-one and gain first-hand interviewing skills while getting instant feedback. The only way to get better with interviewing is to practice, practice, practice! Afterwards, you’ll get a chance to network with the employers that held the Speed Mock Interviews.

Next up on Tuesday, October 15th is the Engineering Career Fair. For all of you Engineering Majors out there, this is a great opportunity for you! Come meet with engineering employers around the Northwest. Whether you’re looking for internships or jobs for out of college, employers bring all available positions to this career fair. Just a few of the companies that have either engineering internships or full-time positions are: Boeing, Garmin, US Navy and the WA State Department of Social and Health Services. The full list of companies attending can be found on ZagTrax.

ATTENTION STUDENTS OF ALL MAJORS: The All Major Career Fair is Wednesday, October 16! Similar to the Engineering Fair (just for all students), the All Major Fair brings employers from all over to one place to help students network and find internships and jobs for out of college. Companies attending include: Coldwater Creek, the Gonzaga MBA Program, the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, Liberty Mutual, Red Lion Hotels, Sherwin-Williams and Wells Fargo. The full list of companies attending can be found on ZagTrax.

To round out Spokane Trek Week, we have the Excursions on Thursday, October 17. Students have the opportunity to meet with local employers at their places of business. Excursions are a great networking opportunity and are really a must for students of all grades and majors! Here is more information on the companies that will be attending:

etailz, formerly Green Cupboards, is a leader in e-commerce, providing environmentally friendly products for the family and home directly to the consumer. Etailz was founded in 2008 by two Gonzaga University students and their Adjunct Professor in Gonzaga’s Entrepreneurship Program as an effort to provide a one-stop shopping alternative for eco-friendly products to streamline the way customers “buy green.” This startup company has since acquired other companies, including Ecomom, a distributor of family-friendly “green” products. www.etailz.com ALL MAJORS, ALL CLASS YEARS INVITED TO PARTICIPATE.

NXNW employees come from a wide array of backgrounds, including directing, producing, photography, editing, motion graphics design and audio engineering. www.nxnw.net ALL MAJORS, ALL CLASS YEARS INVITED TO PARTICIPATE.

We hope to see all of you at the Spokane Trek Week events! Please email us at CareerCenter&Gamp@gonzaga.edu with any questions or concerns you may have.

Weebly, Part 2

After we posted last week about Greg Talbott’s Weebly page, one of our very own, GU senior Emily Piskulick decided to make the plunge into setting up her own Weebly page to provide all of you with a step-by-step process of just how easy it is! We also want to demonstrate to all of you students just how versatile of a service Weebly is. While Greg chose a darker, manlier theme, Emily chose a light and somewhat feminine theme, proving that you can truly make your site your own. All in all, it took Emily about 1 hour to set up her Weebly page, including picking the theme, creating different pages and transferring her resume and writing samples to the page. Learn more about Emily’s experience below!

“Hey GU Career Center followers! Last week for fun I decided to go ahead and create a Weebly page just to show you how easy and versatile of a service Weebly really is. I started by choosing one of the varied and diverse Weebly themes, which make your site look however you would like. For each theme, you can customize just about anything – fonts, colors, sizes… really anything you can think of! Then, Weebly makes it extremely easy to create different pages, add text and images, and even add videos, slideshows, documents or anything else you’d like to showcase your work. If you’d like to get really fancy, you can even buy your own domain (such as emilypiskulick.com) and get access to more complex analytics and features.”

“I would highly recommend every student takes the hour or so out of your day and set up a Weebly page – it makes it so easy to send over to possible employers with all of your information, resume and writing samples in one place!”

Be sure to check out Weebly and set up your own site – it’s a great resource, especially for students trying to score internships or jobs!
