2014 HOL Poster

Recruiting | September is a busy month for us. We hosted the E-Fest career fair for Science and Engineering students with 80 employers and almost 600 candidates in attendance. Great turnout for such a specialized fair. Head of the Lakes Job & Internship Fair is coming up on October 2nd. This fair is open to students of all majors. We hope to see you there!

Talking | Every Friday during Fall semester we are tabling for Bulldog Friday Visits with the Office of Admissions. We’re helping to welcome prospective students and their parents to campus and answering their questions about what some of their different career options might be with all of the different majors available at UMD. This past Friday, Glen & I had a blast talking to people.

Reviewing | Resumes, LinkedIn, GoldPASS, oh my! We’ve been busy with students stopping in for help with their resumes, building their LinkedIn profiles, and navigating around GoldPASS. Stop by SCC 22 Tuesdays & Wednesdays 2-4pm for Resume Drop-ins and Thursdays 2-4pm for LinkedIn & GoldPASS help.

Planning | We’re putting together our new author roster for the blog for the Fall. Get ready to meet some new people and to read some great content. Starting October 6th we’ll be back to our regular 5x per week posting schedule.
