Food & Agriculture and Environmental & Natural Resources Meetup: Mapping Your Career

Thursday, February 15, 2018 • 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: FSB Reading room (101)

So maybe you've had a summer opportunity that turned out not to be your dream job. Maybe you're a bit worried because your future career path doesn't seem as clear-cut as those of your friends in other majors. Or maybe you are sure of what you want to do, but have no idea how to leverage your experiences and professional network to get on track to make it happen. If any of this sounds like you, join us to learn about career mapping and what it can do for your professional goals. By utilizing University Career Services resources, we will explore what a career trajectory looks like and strategies to get there. Your meetup hosts will be industry-savvy career development specialist Larry Jacobs and our senior lead peer career advisor. Bring your laptop or tablet and your career questions!

ABOUT CAREER MEETUPS: Career Meetups are informal, casual meetings that take place in various areas across campus and are co-facilitated by one of our full-time cluster-specific Career Advisors and a student Peer Career Advisor. They begin with a brief presentation followed by open discussion. Think of these as small group advising sessions which provide an opportunity for meaningful dialogue.

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.
