Job Search Boot Camp

Monday, April 17, 2017 • 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Location: College Avenue Student Center, MPR

Practice proven job search strategies during this live, hands-on workshop! You will also learn about the resources and events available to you right on campus for finding a job.

For instance, are you aware that a wide variety of local and national employers use rooms in the Busch Student Center to interview students for full-time and internship positions?

Learn multiple approaches, ranging from traditional to innovative, that will help maximize your success in landing a job! In this informative session, we will cover key strategies you need to know before, during and after your job search.

ITEMS NEEDED: You will get the most out of this interactive workshop if you can bring your own laptop or tablet. If you don't have either, a smartphone will suffice.

Registration Information:
This program requires preregistration. To register:

  1. Login to your CareerKnight account
  2. Select "Events, Workshops & Contests" on the left menu bar
  3. Select "Workshops" in the secondary gray bar
  4. You can use the keyword search field to search through the various programs in the system to locate this event
  5. Only students who RSVP for information sessions are guaranteed seats. Others will be allowed into the room five minutes prior to the start time if space is available.

RSVP No-Show Policy:

Participants are considered "no-shows" when they fail to cancel their RSVPs through CareerKnight with sufficient notice (within 24 hours of the program). Failure to attend events for which students have submitted RSVPs will result in a suspension of all CareerKnight privileges, including On-Campus Interviews and job postings. In case of inclement weather, please check www.rutgers.edu to determine the University's operating status. We will follow all closings and delays.

Why we need a no-show/cancellation policy for events: Please note that when participants no-show for events that require an RSVP, it is unfair to potential participants who wanted to attend but couldn't due to a possible waitlist. In addition, for some events (not all) we have employers and organizers who participate and they are giving their time to assist RU students/alumni. Thus, having no-shows for RSVP events not only reflects negatively on you, but on Rutgers University as well. Moreover, such lapses of etiquette are generally not tolerated in business and civic settings.

Registration Information: Learn more and register by logging into your Rutgers Handshake account.

Sessions are ONLY open to Rutgers-New Brunswick students as well as RBS-Newark.
