Career Center Representative Applications


We are currently looking for new Career Center Representatives for the 2014-2015 school year.
This is a student led organization seeking currently enrolled Gonzaga University students to apply.

Mission Statement:
The mission of the Career Center Representatives is twofold:
1. To further the growth and maturity of the general Gonzaga student body in regards to their professional development through peer mentoring
2. Enhance the breadth and knowledge of the current Career Center Representatives
While this enhancement is for the direct individual benefit of each Career Center Representative, the main objective is to trickle down this knowledge to the Gonzaga student body, in order to fulfill our duties as peer mentors. All this should be done in accordance with Gonzaga Ethos Statement.

• Assist peers with résumés & cover letters, interviewing, internship and job search, and networking assistance during weekly office hours (minimum of two per week).
• Attend weekly/bi-weekly CCR meetings and trainings.
• Deliver scheduled presentations to classes and residence halls.
• Work in teams to create and promote career initiatives.
• Promote, attend and assist with Career Center events.

We Are Looking For:
Engaged, organized and dependable people to play a very important role on the Career Center team. We want a person who wants to be part of something really special, this includes representing the Career Center & GAMP and providing excellent customer service to your peers. If you are looking for an exciting opportunity to gain leadership experience, work independently and in a team, assist others with career coaching, and also look forward for a chance to get a head start on your own career—this is the role for you!

We will train you on all the career development knowledge you will need, so there is no specific experience necessary!

To apply, check out our ZagTrax posting now! Applications will be accepted through March 31.

Hello! My name is Emily Piskulick and I’m the Career Center’s Social Media Intern this year. Last week, I attended the San Francisco Trek and had the opportunity to visit LinkedIn and Weber Shandwick in downtown San Francisco. Here’s the part where I encourage all of you to go on the treks — literally, I don’t know why you wouldn’t. It’s five hours of your spring break and I left with countless connections and inspiration to get hired.

At LinkedIn, my favorite part of the office tour and presentation was the actual PowerPoint presentation. Led by fellow GU alum Audra Bloom, this presentation wasn’t just about how to get hired at LinkedIn — it was about how to use LinkedIn to get hired anywhere.

Did you know that 70% of jobs today are found through networking? I didn’t, until I visited LinkedIn. That statistic really stressed the importance of profiles on sites like LinkedIn, don’t you think?

Some of the best tips that Audra gave us in her presentation are below. If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile yet, I would highly suggest getting one. And, if you have any questions while you’re building your rockstar profile, don’t hesitate to drop by our offices in Crosby 211.

  • Visit your University’s page on LinkedIn to see what GU grads do, where they are, when they graduated, what they studied and how you’re connected. GU grads are extremely willing to help out fellow GU grads get hired!
  • Fill your profile with keywords. Many sites simply scan your profile for keywords that match their job description. I’m a PR/Marketing student, so some keywords you might find on my site are: public relations, marketing, communications, time management, social media, CisionPoint, blogging, Facebook, analytics, etc.
  • If you want to contact someone via InMail (LinkedIn’s internal e-mail service) but aren’t a 1st connection with them, no worries! Invite them to connect and in the message, include information about yourself and explain why you want to connect. Speaking of which, you should always personalize invitations to connect in the Message box.
  • Upload samples of your work. Some projects at jobs or majors may be easier to upload samples of work because they’re more visual in nature (i.e. photography, graphic design, etc.), however if you have any documents you’re proud of, projects you can boast or anything you’ve created at previous jobs, be sure to put that on your profile. The more you can show you’ve done, the better.

I really hope that this post and these tips and tricks from LinkedIn have proven helpful — now go, create your profile, discover all that LinkedIn has to offer and get hired! #HireAZag
