So this is the New Year...
Welcome Drexel students, new and old! The 2012-2013 school year is officially off and running. For many, this new year will be completely different than the last couple of months. Many students are coming back to Drexel after studying abroad. Others are returning to class after working on their co-op. And, of course, there are the many new students who are starting their first year of college today. For the Freshmen, today represents a new beginning, providing them with many new opportunities to grow and explore. However, for the upperclassmen, today can be a Fresh start.
Whether you had a rough couple of classes, or didn't get the co-op you were hoping for, this year can be the year you turn it around. Like I mentioned in a previous post, create a set of goals for yourself for this year. Determine what it is that you want to accomplish and map out how you can achieve them. For your career goals in particular, try to use as many resources as possible. Speak to a career counselor, co-op coordinator or myself for personal assistance. Visit the Career Collections in Hagerty & Hahnemann Libraries for more information on certain industries or tips for your job search. Attend a workshop to help with your interviewing, resume writing or job searching skills. If you're unsure of where to look, follow the Steinbright Career Development Center or the Career Services Library Assistant on Twitter.
No matter what your goals are, know that there are resources here to help you make this year your best year yet!
