Posted by Laura Cheek on Aug 21, 2015 11:56:33 AM

Back to school can be a fun time for students, parents and all those working in our schools and universities. Have you ever thought about a career in education? Pre-school, elementary, secondary, post-secondary? Adult education? Besides the obvious teaching roles, there are many other positions available for those with a passion, or the skills, for a career in education.

In addition, you may have opportunity to be an educational consultant or work for a company creating curriculum or textbooks.

The State of the Workforce Address

Posted by Laura Cheek on Apr 29, 2015 5:49:36 PM

They just have to be willing to ride the crazy job search ride.

Posted by Laura Cheek on Mar 17, 2015 1:51:00 PM

Career services hosted Doug Smith for our Leaders in the Industry series on Wednesday, 3/11, and we had a great turnout! Doug provided an overview of our current economic state and his predictions for recovery. He offered great encouragement that despite the economy, there are opportunities to be had, even for starting your own business. The key is to be fearless, to step out of your comfort zone, and to try what you believe in! He notes getting any training that comes your way as very important, even if you don’t know how it fits in at the time. Also, your career path in any industry is not set in stone; so it is acceptable to change course as needed to find just the right opportunities.
