Wondering what to do this weekend?
If you haven’t yet had a chance to dig into our Aspire Center summer series, this week we learned “How a Job (or Internship!) is Born” and what that means, from figuring out what you want to do to actually getting it.
If you’re wondering what to do this weekend, how about spending a few minutes to set yourself up for success?! As a reminder, our summer series is built for you to join in at any time, so no worries if you haven’t participated yet. Listed below are some quick ways to engage.
Some Small Steps to Take for Big Results:
- Navigating Networking: If you didn’t check out our quick 2-minute video that lays the framework for our summer series, this weekend is the perfect time for it.
- Who do you know? Start to create a list of people you know. Your network is bigger than you realize! Check out the My Network Map for ideas!
- Expand Your Network: Carthage alumni are ready and excited to connect with you. Jump on The Aspire Network to look for people you want to know.
- Complete Your Early Summer Check-Up: Completing this quick check-up will help clarify some goals for you while also helping us understand what you may need from us right now.
- Come See Us! Well, kind of. If you’d like to schedule a virtual appointment with your Career Specialist at any time, please feel free to connect with us on Handshake.
Mark Your Calendar: Next week, we dive into putting these components into practice and you’ll learn how to “Tell Your Story” while networking and interviewing. See a virtual networking dinner party in action with a current student, some recent alumni, and a special guest host. Listen, learn, and laugh with some fellow Carthaginians!
If you are not sure that you want to get started with any of this and you cherish your weekends to just sit back and relax, we encourage that, too. (We get it…it’s summer!) Learn about giving yourself a break from an internationally-known organizational psychologist and best-selling author. Yes, even some of the most successful people in the world put off things they know they should do sometimes.
Remember, even small steps make a difference, so give yourself credit for all of the progress you are able to make! These are challenging times in many ways.
