2/14/2008

Boston, MA – Suffolk’s career services office offers a series of 30-minute career seminars beginning on Wednesday, February 20. Senior year is the time to start looking towards the future, and Career Services’ series of 30 minute Career Workouts can help you shape up your job search skills before graduation.

Career Workouts were developed with the busy schedules of graduating seniors in mind. The Wednesday/Thursday time slots for the twice weekly seminars are scheduled to overlap the least with senior classes, and the concise 30 minute format offers seniors a quick burst of essential job search skills before graduation. According to Betsy McDowell, Associate Director of Career Services, “The Career Workouts give seniors an opportunity to get quick rundowns on need-to-know topics for the real world.” Whether you attend just one or more of these half-hour discussions, now is the time to take advantage of the resources of Career Services and put yourself on the path to professional success.
