Virtual Resources from the RU Office of Career Development

by Emily Henley (MM Harp Performance ’21 and CAL Career Development Assistant)
Hello, and welcome back to “Virtual University,” CCPA colleagues! What a new and interesting time to be able to log-on to our classes from the comfort of our couches?! While I love a good couch, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m bummed not to be at our beautiful campus this semester. With access to our campus comes access to resources that are crucial to our future careers. Don’t worry, I’m here to tell you that many departments, like The Office of Career Development, are adapting with us and offering a variety of virtual resources that we need to succeed!
I’d like to highlight some awesome offerings being made available to us from The Office of Career Development. Usually located in the Wabash Building, The Office of Career Development is now working virtually to bring you career development resources to further your own passions, projects, and career success! Listed below are their current Fall 2020 offerings:
  • Career counseling via phone appointment
  • Resume reviews remote via email/Handshake
  • Job and internship opportunities via Handshake
  • Past virtual workshops via YouTube channel
  • Career Development: Virtual Drop-In Hour 3:00-4:00PM CDT on 9/16
All of this information can be accessed via their website by searching ‘Roosevelt University Office of Career Development’ or through this link.
Future virtual workshops created and offered by The Office of Career Development will be announced throughout the semester, so keep an eye on their website for updates! Also check out virtual offerings from your very own CAL team as we are working hard to bring you engaging virtual experiences to further your experiences outside of the Zoom classroom!
