When Wayne and I ran for office last spring, one of our main platform issues we called “Real Connections.” It aimed to increase interaction between K-State students and alumni through providing advice and mentorship as students prepare to enter the workforce.
We held multiple meetings with Career and Employment Services and other university groups to talk about ways to achieve these goals. From the conversations the idea of Career Cat Chats was born.
These chats are online, CES-sponsored chat rooms designed for K-State students to question working professionals about the job-search process. The resume and cover letter chat held today will feature Troy Teague of Cerner, and Bret Fischer of State Street.
Both professionals will be answering questions on how to make your resume and cover letter stand out from other applicants. They will also share helpful resume tips for do’s and don’ts of the trade.
Look forward to more Career Cat Chats every Thursday throughout the month of April. Future topics include interviewing, networking, job openings and transitioning from college to career.
For dates and times, check out the CES Web site at k-state.edu/ces or look for it in the Planner section on page two of the Collegian.
I hope to see many of you in the chat room.
