Career Coaching

We provide one-on-one career coaching in all aspects of the career management process: self-assessment, market-assessment, job search skills and tools, and negotiation strategies.

 

Resume and Cover Letter Reviews

Career Services helps students create or re-create their resume and cover letter into effective job search tools.

 

Mock Interviews

A mock interview conducted by an external consulting firm provides an excellent "dress rehearsal" for the real thing. Students are provided with verbal and written feedback based upon the Mock interviews.

 

Resume Books

To help market Rutgers students, Career Services creates Resume Books for employers—Resume books are used by firms to identify appropriate candidates for full-time and internship opportunities.

 

Resume Referral

At the request of employers, Career Services forwards the resumes of students who meet the employer's stated qualifications for consideration for full-time or internship positions.

 

Job Postings

Employers post job descriptions on Symplicity primarily for full-time opportunities and internships to target our students without coming on campus for a full day of interviews.

 

On-Campus Recruiting Program

Beyond posting job opportunities, Career Services manages the On-Campus Recruiting Program–consisting of Corporate Presentations, On-Campus Interviews, and Lunch and Learn Presentations and Networking, Job Postings, Corporate Outreach.  Our goal is to help each student prepare for a successful career in Accounting.
