We have five Career Coaches to assist as you prepare.  First, create an elevator pitch.  An elevator pitch is a short statement about yourself and your abilities that answers:
1. Who are you and what do you do?
2. What skills do you have that add value in many situations?
3. What goal do you have that is relevant to the position you want?
Your pitch should be personable and include questions about the interviewer or their company. Don't forget to have a resume on hand. Prepare by practicing at the Spring Career Fair.   Career Success offers walk-in services to help you clean-up your resume. If you want to dive deeper into preparing for the Fair, schedule a meeting with one of five Career Coaches through Handshake.

Health, Wellness and Safety
Find a Mindful Moment
Incorporate mindfulness into your daily routine.  Mindfulness is paying attention in three particular ways:  on purpose, in the moment and without judgment.  Slow down to fully appreciate and be present in the moment. Choose an activity and completely focus on this activity as slowly as you can while being aware of all your senses (i.e., sound, taste, smell, touch, and sight). Practice a mindful moment each day when you spend time quietly savoring something! Fully engaging in savoring food, taking a walk, looking at nature, or listening to soothing music has many beneficial effects.  Read more about mindfulness practices.
