3. FACS Career Consultant Corner


  • The last day of Career Center Drop-ins will be April 30th. There will be no more Dawson Satellite Hours this semester. Both will return in the Fall.
  • Graduating this May? Already committed to a full-time job, internship, or graduate school after graduation? Fill out the Career Outcomes Survey and be entered for a chance to win up to $500 in prizes!
  • You can still have Career Center appointments over the summer, either in person or via Skype/Phone. Don’t wait until the Fall if you have questions.
  • If you’re graduating, you can still use the Career Center as an alum (forever). We have Career Consultants dedicated to working with alumni on anything career-related. Don’t be a stranger!

Thanks so much for a great semester, everyone. It’s been a pleasure serving FACS and assisting you with all of your career needs. Stay in touch with us to let us know all the amazing things you accomplish. Have a great summer!
