Career advice for Science students
I learned how to network myself, use new forms of social media, how to follow up after a job interview and the importance of using appropriate wording in your resume to represent yourself. ScienceM@tters participant
This program is such a good idea for students to participate in. It gives you so much information about finding a job in the "real world" whether it be resume writing or interview skills. Also, pairing with a mentor who has previously been in your position is extremely helpful and informative. ScienceM@tters participant
It exposed me to a variety of career options that I could pursue with my degree choice. I also benefited from the resume critique, and how it guided me to better prepare myself for how to find a job and how to network myself. ScienceM@tters participant
