We have had a great semester in the Hall Career Center. We appreciate all of those students who have taken the time to attend events that will help you in your future job searches. For those students who have participated, this is a reminder that all Passports with 3 or more stamps MUST be turned in byDECEMBER 5 to be eligible for prize drawings. One of the prizes will be reserved parking spaces for the spring semester. Bring your passport to the Career Center. We have a big semester planned for spring and hope everyone will take advantage of the opportunites we provide in helping with job searching, interviewing skills, resume writing, networking, etc. Enjoy the holiday season. We all have a lot to be thankful for!
