Career and Academic Planning is featured in The Breeze

Last Tuesday, January 22nd, The Breeze featured an article entitled “JMU resources key in snagging the job”. This article, written by Bridget Condon included tips and testimonies on how to snag internships, the best ways to network, and what resources there are on campus to use with the job search. Featured in the article was Career and Academic Planning’s own Emma Maynard, Recruiting Programs Coordinator and JMU alum. Maynard explains in the article how she regrets her lack of resource-use during her time at JMU. Says Maynard in the article, “The most important thing to remember is that the future will come faster than you think. You’ll be thankful if you take the time now to properly prepare for when that chapter begins”.

According to The Breeze and any of the staff in Career and Academic Planning, the resources available should be put to use by all students hoping to find a job, and they should be used before graduation. These resources include mock interviews, resume writing workshops, individual resume review appointments, company information sessions, career fairs and much, much more.

For more information on these resources, see our website at www.jmu.edu/cap. For the full article from The Breeze, go to http://www.breezejmu.org/life/article_d955e154-6443-11e2-8500-0019bb30f31a.html.
