Meghan Orner, Career Center Intern
Another year is gone. It is hard to believe, but all too soon finals will be over and seniors will be graduating. We hope that all students have had a fulfilling and enriching year, and for seniors, your time here at Mount St. Mary’s University will undoubtedly be an important chapter in your life. Whether you are moving onto graduate school or entering the workforce, remember that the Career Center is still here to help.
Many of the services available to students are still available to you as alumni. Alumni can use College Central to search for job opportunities 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Career Counseling is also an option for alumni. You can continue to visit with a counselor for individual assistance with career planning and decision-making, along with taking a career interest and personality inventory. Not only are you encouraged to make appointments with a career counselor, but you are also invited to all the events the Career Center sponsors. Alumni are welcome to attend the workshops, seminars, on-campus recruitment and Career Fairs that are held throughout the year. There are various ways for you to give back to the Mount too. Serving on an alumni panel or offering internships or jobs at your place of employment are just some examples.
A service exclusively for alumni is the Mentoring Network. This gives alumni the opportunity to mentor fellow Mounties and network with alumni on various career levels. To register, visit www.msmary.edu/mentoring and select “Join Our Mentoring Network.” Director of the Career Center Clare Tauriello encourages alumni to take advantage of these services: “The Career Center welcomes the opportunity to assist alumni in their career development. You may be graduating, but our services continue.”
Remember that you can always contact the Career Center at 301-447-5202 or Career-Center@msmary.edu. Once a Mountie, always a Mountie. On behalf of the entire Career Center staff, we congratulate the Class of 2014 and wish them the best of luck as they begin their next chapter in life.
