You only get one chance to make a great first impression. This presentation will guide students in understanding the difference between casual, business casual, and business professional dress.

In addition, we will explain “Behavioral Based” interview questions and how to answer them using the “STAR” method.

COMPETENCY – Oral Communication & Career Management

There are so many methods to find a job that it can quickly become overwhelming. The Career Center wants to help increase students’ confidence in the job search process by providing valuable tips and tricks. This presentation goes over how to use Handshake and other online sources when searching for a job or internship as well as how to use LinkedIn to create connections with fellow La Salle alumni. We will also talk about how to use the power of networking to find open positions.

COMPETENCY – Career Management

Students are involved in many on and off-campus activities (student organizations, athletics, research, church groups, etc.), but they often have trouble conveying those experiences both verbally and in writing to an employer. This short presentation helps students understand why it is important to articulate their successes and tell their story effectively. We will also go over sample resume bullets that are specific to out-of-the-classroom experiences. This session should be presented after a resume writing presentation or workshop.

COMPETENCY – Oral Communication & Professionalism/Work Ethic

As educators and Lasallians, our goal is to ensure that all students leave La Salle feeling prepared for the world. This workshop includes information on how to recognize one’s own strengths, skills, and interests that will help prepare them for an internship or future career. We will write reflections and work in small groups to discuss what employers are looking for in new professionals.
