Top 5 Ways Rasmussen College Career Services Works For You

Getting through college is a great achievement and you owe it to yourself to take advantage of the resources available in the Career Services office to make sure that degree gets used. Below are the Top 5 Ways you can work with your Career Services Advisor to make your job search successful:

1. Communicate:  Be sure to connect with your Career Services Advisor, CSA, when you get started in your classes. Ask them what you can do early to better prepare you for the job market. They love assisting you in going the extra mile!

2. Use your Resources: Optimal Resume and Job Connect are both listed under the resources tab in your online classes.  Logins are the same, and the websites are easy to use. Having a polished, professional resume will set you apart from the competition and using Job Connect will get your resume in front of employers who specifically want to recruit you.

3. Go to the Career Expo: Every campus hosts a Career Expo in February and again in August. The team works hard to recruit employers that are specific to your program, as well as, applicable volunteer opportunities. Skipping this event is not an option if you’re committed to your career success. 

4. Participate in Campus Groups: Seek out opportunities to be involved in your program activities, be a tutor in the Learning Center, and take on hours as a Work-Study (see Financial Services for eligibility guidelines). Connecting to your campus, your peers, and outside agencies is called networking. It will pay off in the long run.

5. Keep In Touch: Passing your classes and graduating is an epic achievement. Stay in contact with your Career Services Advisor to keep current on career opportunities, campus events, and updates to your field of study.  Connect with the applicable Career Services Advisor for more information on the resources listed above:
