Professionalism course offered for junior and senior students

As graduation quickly approaches, seniors are being faced with one question, whether they like it or not: what are your plans after graduation?

Students have worked hard in the past four years getting to this point, and now that they’ve reached it, it could possibly be quite scary.

Seniors have just mastered the skill of being a student. Being an adult in the real world — yikes, that’s a whole new skill in itself.

So how can students best prepare themselves for graduation and starting the hunt for a job? Attending the “Seal the Deal: 6 S.I.M.P.L.E. Steps to Get Your Dream Job After College,” that’s how. Motivational speaker, Pete Leibman, will touch on several key components to landing a job after graduation. And not just any job, but your dream job.

“If you want to learn how to get a better job faster, this is an event you won’t want to miss,” Leibman said. “I’m going to reveal all the job search secrets I wish someone had told me when I was in college.”

Think about it, you haven’t gone through four years of staying up until 3 a.m. studying for exams, pulling your hair out because of ten paged papers, or writing out and memorizing hundreds of flash cards just to land an “O.K.” job.

Let’s be honest. Everyone wants a job that they’re going to love. And as Leibman will explain, it’s possible to get that job right out of college.

Juniors and Seniors are invited to attend this free event on Thursday, February 16, at 7 p.m. The event is being held in the east meeting room of Westminster Hall. Dessert and refreshments will be provided.

Pete Leibman is the Job Search and Career Expert and Founder at Dream Job Academy. He is the author of “I Got My Dream Job and So Can You! 7 Steps Toward Creating Your Ideal Career After College,” due to come out in March.

During the event “Seal the Deal: 6 S.I.M.P.L.E. Steps to Get Your Dream Job After College,” Leibman will give students tips in critical areas like interviewing and resumé writing in order to prepare them for finding a job they love.

This is the third event on the Junior/Senior Circuit on Professionalism. The advancement office and career services provided junior and senior students with an “Etiquette Dinner” and “How to Lose Your Job in 10 Easy Steps” during the fall semester.

Jon Yeh says that through these events, “We hope students will walk away with life skills and career building education that dovetails with their academic pursuits.”  The advancement office also hopes that students, who are soon to become alumni, get to know who the advancement office is and what they do so that connections continue long after graduation.

If students would like to attend “Seal the Deal: 6 S.I.M.P.L.E. Steps to Get Your Dream Job After College,” they can simply RSVP by filling out the form at grace.edu/dreamjob.
