Career Studio: UC students push professional goals forward
December 9, 2020
By Jenn Cammel and Rebecca Schweitzer
While the COVID-19 pandemic has changed so much of college students’ lives, one need remains the same: landing a job after graduation.
Toward that end, University of Cincinnati students, working through the Bearcat Promise Career Studio, serve as Peer Career Coaches, mentoring students with advice for building resumés and cover letters, interviewing, navigating career platforms such as LinkedIn and Handshake, and upcoming virtual career fairs.
The Bearcat Promise Career Studio, opened in 2019 in UC’s Tangeman University Center, offers full-service job search coaching to students seeking their next step out of college. The center supports UC’s strategic direction Next Lives Here, and its Bearcat Promise that UC students leave college with a degree in one hand, and a career plan in the other.
With spring semester about a month away, A&S students can take advantage of these services to prepare for upcoming college career events, including Spring Career Fair: Professional Day on Tuesday, Feb. 9, and the A&S Career Fair scheduled for Wednesday, March 31.
Here, four Peer Career Coaches from A&S share their experiences and top tips for job searches during COVID and beyond.
