Senior Check-In

A message from GW Career Services:

Senior Check-In is a more personalized level of career consulting for seniors graduating in May. In addition to providing our usual one-on-one advising sessions on:

-resume and cover letter writing

-interview and job search preparation

-personal branding

-networking

-career self-assessment

We are following up with each senior either by phone or email to help track their progress and ensure they are aware of our commitment to help them find a job.

Please feel free to stop by the 5thfloor of the Marvin Center during drop-in hours, Monday-Friday from 11am-2pm, or to log into GWork: https://gwu-csm.symplicity.com/students/index.php to make a Senior Check-In appointment!
