May 31: Resume and job search workshop

Are you currently looking for a new job? Do you need professional advice to spruce up your resume? “Who you gonna call?” Ok, no need to answer that last question. But if you answered any, or all, of the previous two questions with an emphatic ‘YES!’ then Career Center is here to help.

Metropolitan State University’s Career Center is hosting a Resume and Job Search Workshop on the Saint Paul campus.

This event is just in time for graduating seniors and students who are preparing to embark on a job search, or for students who are looking for a professional advice to spruce up their resumes.

The workshop is a great way to learn about the current “best practices” in resume development, and some of the most effective ways to go about looking for a job with a special emphasis on networking. You will leave with a specific action plan and hopefully, renewed energy.

WHEN:   4 to 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 31
WHERE: Metropolitan State Saint Paul Campus, Science Building, SEC 115
FOR WHOM:  All majors, all minors, grad students and alumni
QUESTIONS: Contact Career Center at 651.793.1528
EMAIL: career.center@metrostate.edu

The university community is invited to a farewell reception for Emily Sladky, coordinator, Pathways Program. The reception is 11 a.m.–1 p.m., March 24, Career Center, Room 110, Founders Hall, Saint Paul Campus.

Since joining Metropolitan State University in October 2010, Sladky provided exemplary leadership in managing the Pathways Program and Travelers EDGE Scholarship Program. Both are externally funded by an annually renewable grant that began in 2007. She significantly revamped these programs and created a D2L course with ten modules about personal, professional and career development. She also helped produce a workshop series and other key events put on by the Career Services office, as well as bringing the Handshake tool to Metro.

Together with Jill Sondergaard, Sladky worked to coordinate employer relationships through various panels, mock interviews, resume reviews and site visits to companies such as Travelers, Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, Wells Fargo and Spire Credit Union. She was also an active member of the University Scholarship Committee.

Emily has accepted a position at Augsburg College as assistant director of their Career and Internship Services Office in the Strommen Center for Meaningful Work. Her last day at Metropolitan State is March 25.
