3.  Professional Development

Working at the Pomerantz Career Center, you have the opportunity to gain professional development on a variety of topics! Every two weeks, we have a PCC professional staff member come and present a professional development topic. This is a great way to learn information by asking questions in a small group setting. Some previous topics we’ve covered: how to negotiate your salary, creating a LinkedIn profile, application process for graduate school, how to format unique resumes and cover letters, etc. Additionally, you can get personal feedback from professional staff on your own resume, cover letter, job search, interviews, and much more!

 

4. Leadership Opportunity

Working at the Pomerantz Career Center provides the opportunity for personal growth just as much as professional growth. It is encouraged to use your own strengths and apply them to the position. Whether it be working as a Career Peer Advisor, the Employer Relations Intern, the Events Intern, Graphic Design Intern, or the Marketing and Events Intern for the Career Leadership Academy, you have the ability to use your unique talents to contribute to the team! Giving presentations to various classes and student organizations also builds your confidence and communication skills, while giving you the chance to connect with other students across campus. Another helpful perk is being able to network with campus employers and professionals in the office. However, the most rewarding part about the job is assisting students - leaving you with a sense of fulfillment having left a small, positive impact on their futures.
