Spring Semester is underway and the Career Center/GAMP offices have some key career development events that are coming around the corner, which are open to students of all years and academic majors.
Speed Mock Interviews: Gives students the practice of interviewing without the pressure of landing the “dream job”. Students have the opportunity to interview round robin style with 20 employers. Immediate feedback on their answers is shared. This is an excellent opportunity to practice and refine interviewing skills for all students. The event will be held on Feb. 22 at 6pm. Encourage your student to RSVP by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
17th Annual Partnership in Employment Fair: This exciting career fair is a joint effort between the four regional Universities (Gonzaga University, Whitworth University, Washington State University – Spokane and Eastern Washington University). This robust career fair features 80 regional employers. If your student is exploring the idea an internship or full-time opportunity this summer, they want to be at this event! The fair takes place on Feb. 23rd from 2-7 pm at the Spokane Convention Center. For more information, go to: http://www.partnershipfair.com/
2011 Bay Area Treks: Our fourth annual Bay Area Trek (March 10-11) is another great experience for our students. Students of all majors and years are invited to join us for the Bay Area Treks.

This semester, in addition to these capstone events, the Career Center/GAMP is “Takin’ it On the Road” to various academic buildings on campus. Our goal is to create a visual and friendly reminder to students that the Career Center is a resource in their career development process. The Career Center/GAMP team will be present with resources tailored to their academic area and focus. No need for student’s to schedule an appointment, just come on by!

As always, the Career Center/GAMP offices are a resource for the career development process for your student regardless of year or academic major. Encourage them to swing by for a Drop-In Hour (each Tuesday 12-1) for some career coaching, but no appointment needed!
