Have you ever visited the Career Center webpage? It’s a great resource for students to take advantage of — you can learn more about our resources & services, all in one place. Some key tools to be aware of are:

If you’re confused as to where to start, check out our “Career Center Bucket List” and knock these items off of your list before you graduate from GU!

  1. Make an appointment on ZagTrax or use our drop-in hours (M-Th, 2-5pm). During these appointments, you can begin building you résumé or cover letter or have an employee or Career Center Representative look over a current résumé or cover letter. You can also ask any questions you may have about your major, internship or job search or professional development in general.
  2. Order business cards. It’s $5 for 100 cards, so really how can you not take advantage? They’re extremely professional looking + necessary for networking.
  3. Get linked with GAMP Mentors. You can find fellow Zag graduates in the city of your choice + in the field of your choice or company you choose. The process is extremely simple — and worth it!
  4. Search for jobs on ZagTrax. There are tons of internships and jobs just waiting for students to apply, so take advantage now!
  5. Go on a Trek. We visit New York, Seattle, Spokane, Portland and the Bay Area. You get to visit a company from our list of exceptional companies we visit on each trek + network with employees.
  6. If you don’t know what you want to do after graduation yet, check out “What Can I Do With This Major…?”! This helpful resource gives so much information re: what fields/jobs you can go into and get with your particular major.
  7. Want to know how much you’ll be making out of graduation? Check out this salary calculator.
