"5 Creative ways to use social media to find your dream job"

I'm hearing more and more people say that they used platforms, such as Facebook, to get a job/internship. Check out some tips here: http://bit.ly/2f0bQZa

"What Should I Include in My Federal Resume?"

Many of you have come to me wanting help with your federal resumes. As a reminder, a resume for the government is completely different than a normal resume! Read about the formatting here: http://bit.ly/2eHWqMz Want more help? Make an appointment at the career center!

Behavioral Interviews

Watch the video here: http://bit.ly/2vM5hUI


The behavioral interview is an increasingly popular method of testing a job candidate's emotional intelligence. Company's want to know how a candidate will perform under pressure and there's no better indicator than the past. Watch Billy explain the "S.T.A.R." method of answering behavioral questions so you can go into your next interview with confidence!
