Take a virtual “tour” Career and Talent Development Center (Links to an external site.). Click on links. You’ll find links to paid internships, professional development resources, handouts, and hiring opportunities.
After your tour, share any thoughts you have. In organizing your thoughts, it may help to consider these questions —
- What areas of the Career and Talent Development Center did you explore and of the areas explored, which find most interesting?
- Did you look at examples of cover letters or resumes? If so, did you save any examples to return to later to study and use?
- Did you search for jobs or internships?
You can use these questions to get your thinking and writing started or ignore the questions and just share whatever thoughts you have.
Imagine that a good friend at FIU who is not in this class, is thinking about her future employment. She’s already changed majors once and complains to you that she has no idea what to do or how to go about making career decisions. She’s heard about the Career and Talent Development Center. Write her an email to share your opinion about the resource. Is it useful, repetitive, full of surprising information or just stuff you can find anywhere?
Your combined submission — Parts 1 and 2 — must be at least 250 words long .
