CAES Career Center Report

Spring 2015 Career Consultant Report

This semester has been a whirlwind, but I thoroughly enjoyed working with College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences. Everyday brought great student led conversation about resume and cover letter critiques, exploring career options, and conducting mock interviews. It was a joy to watch many students I've worked with walk across the stage at the 2015 CAES Commencement. I want to extend a very grateful thank you to the faculty who allotted class time for me to introduce and answer career related questions for students. The future is bright for our partnership and I look forward to it!


Thank you,


Kendra Strickland

APPOINTMENTS

Students are able to meet with me to explore their options and develop a plan to help reach their career objectives. Students can make an appointment by calling 706-542-3375.


MOCK INTERVIEWS

Students are able to participate in a practice (Mock) Interview at the Career Center. Mock interviews are designed to replicate the type of interview that they may expect with a recruiter.

For quick questions (5 - 10 minutes) about topics such as resumes and cover letters, a Career Consultant and/or a Career Development Intern is on hand

Monday - Friday from 12 - 2PM in the Career Center Computer Lab.


SATELLITE HOURS

In addition to walk-in hours, I offered walk-in hours in Conner Hall on Thursdays from 1:30pm-2:30pm. No appointment was necessary.

Presentations

This semester I had the opportunity to present to various classes and clubs. In the near future I will email faculty to coordinate a classroom presentation for the fall. In the meantime, if you would like to reach out to me to present on a career related topic to your class in the Fall, please e-mail me at krlewis@uga.edu.

2015 UGA CAES Career Outcomes Survey Data

Consultant Feedback

After meeting with me in an appointment, students complete a survey on their experience. Based on this year's survey, 100% of students would recommend other students visit the Career Center. Additionally, 100% of my students indicated that they were satisfied with their overall experience of meeting with me. Please feel free to refer any students my way that need career assistance.


Below are some of the highlights from the 2015 survey.

“Kendra was extremely helpful, and I felt much more equipped to search for internships after meeting with her. She was very friendly, and made me feel at ease when I had no idea what I was doing. I did not feel uncomfortable asking questions that I knew I should probably already know the answer to.”

‘Thank you so much for all your help on Thursday! I created my video and submitted it this weekend, so hopefully I will hear back from the aquarium soon. I definitely felt much more confident in creating my video after meeting with you!’
