OPPORTUNITY
On-Campus Employment at The Oakland Post

As an international student, employment requirements limited my job options. Despite those challenges, I was determined to find an on-campus job where I could work on a team and utilize my communication skills. So, I turned to Emily Cutlip in Career Services for help with the job search process, editing my resume and setting up my Handshake profile. On Handshake, I found an Advertising Assistant position at the Oakland Post, and I knew it was the right fit for me.

After applying for the position, I sat down with Emily for a mock interview, which I found particularly useful as I was not very experienced with interviews. Emily created questions that she thought would be relevant to the job, and two of them were actually asked during the interview! I felt very prepared and, as a result, the interview went well. Two days later, I got offered the job! Emily was very helpful and encouraging throughout the entire process. She set aside time to help me and answer all of my questions. All of the resources at Career Services were so helpful!
