Making the Most of Winter Break

December 10, 2012


Winter Break is finally here! We know that you worked hard this fall, so now it’s time for you to travel home, sleep in, or have some holiday fun with friends and family. It’s also a great time to make some moves on your internship or job search. Check out 3 things you can do to make the most of your winter break.

 1. Update your resume & LinkedIn profile to reflect your most recent internship, volunteer, athletics, research or leadership experiences.

2. Ask for at least five referrals from your friends and family.

  • Instead of recapping reality shows over holiday dinners, talk to friends and family about what you're hoping to do this summer or after graduation. You never know who they might know or how they might be able to help. Ask friends and family members  to connect you with their contacts as holiday presents! This is a great opportunity to conduct informational interviews with them (see the Career Planning Guide and webshop).

3. Review LionSHARE and other Internship/Job resources and develop a target list of 20 opportunities/employers.

CCE will reopen on Wednesday, January 2nd with available counseling appointments and Quick Questions (1-4pm). Schedule a phone, in-person or Skype appointment with a counselor by calling 212-854-5609.
