Welcome back! We hope you had a fun, restful, and rejuvenating holiday break.

CDO events are in full swing! We will be offering MANY professional skills and career development workshops/programs to help you manage and succeed in your career development and job search efforts this term.

We try to make sure all students know what we are doing every week so watch for our event information in our weekly newsletter so please read it each week so you don’t miss anything. If you miss a newsletter, don’t worry, our events can also be found in iTrack, *some* email reminders, and the CDO blog http://mblog.lib.umich.edu/sicareers/ as these are the primary resources we use to communicate and share information with students. WE ENCOURAGE (and sometimes require) all students to RSVP for all of our events through iTrack!

Remember, we’re here to help you with your career and job search needs. Make an appointment with us to get that resume updated or just to strategize your job/internship search plans this semester.
