For seniors preparing to graduate, the Career Services office in the Rondileau Campus Center (RCC) is full of opportunities.

From job shadows to on-campus interviews, and even a contest where students could win money towards a very nice, tailored business suit, seniors here at Bridgewater State University should be lining up to take these opportunities to further themselves in the real world.

There’s a catch though: you need to make a special appointment to be able to access any of those things.

It’s called a Senior Recruiting appointment. Essentially, you meet for an hour with a Counselor there. They ask that you bring a resume (even if it’s very poorly done!) and be prepared to learn a little, in addition to discussing your goals post-graduation.

During my appointment, I was given a thick packet with all of the opportunities senior recruiting offers, in addition to advice on how to prepare for and rock an interview with a potential employer.

One event I immediately signed up for was the Etiquette Dinner. The deadline to sign up for the event is Oct. 24, and the event itself is on Wednesday, Nov. 5 from 6 to 8 p.m. Students will get a completely free four course meal, and learn how to properly manage themselves at a formal business dinner, including learning the difference between a regular fork and a salad fork (I can’t tell the difference).

There is a job shadow program with plenty of companies, such as Meditech and the MA Department of Corrections at Bridgewater State Hospital, that takes place over Winter Break.

And the best part is, through CareerLink, they will apply to jobs for you.

Companies will ask for resumes from Career Services, and Career Services will send out those that they think best fits the requirements the companies are looking for. All you need to do is go through the Senior Recruiting appointment and then put your resume up on Career Link.

Seniors looking to get a head start on their futures after BSU should get in touch with Career Services, located in the Rondileau Campus Center, Room 008, and make an appointment. They could also call 508-531-1328 or email careersrv@bridgew.edu, and ask to make a Senior Recruiting appointment.

God Called, and He Told Us to Chill

I’ve never been great at small talk, but I’m going to give it a try: Some weather we’ve been having, huh? First, a 4.8 magnitude earthquake shook New England last Friday morning. Then on Monday, a total solar eclipse passed over the region, the last we’ll see (unless you forgot your eclipse glasses—protect your retinas!) […]

Ode to the Campus Bikers

A few days ago I sat with my friends in University Park, waiting for the solar eclipse to (somewhat) knock my socks off, when all of a sudden there they were. We all know them. That group of middle school kids that ride around campus on their bikes, acting all tough with their wheelies.  I […]
