Any college grad knows the job or internship hunt can be a nightmare – you need the perfect resume, perfect cover letter, and employers that are even looking for the talent you have to offer.
But, Castleton’s Career Services is here to help, with a new subscription to an online job board called College Central Network.
The Vermont State College System is providing this system to students and alumni to connect them with employers who are looking for interns or employees at companies around Castleton.
So far, 48 companies have registered, Director of Career Services, Reneé Beaupré-White said.
She also pointed out users can view jobs and internships posted anywhere in the United States as well.
“It’s the nation’s largest entry-level job board,” Beaupré-White said.
And it is completely FREE for students and alumni to use.
She said it not only shows you job and internship postings, but has various resources to help you get the job you want, such as articles on how to write a cover letter, podcasts that give advice on all aspects of this process, an event calendar specific to Castleton Career Services and informational videos.
“You can get information, a ton of information. How to tie a knot in a tie, interview advice, resume basics,” Beaupré-White said.
All students have to do to access this resource is register, she said. And 135 students have done so since the beginning of the school year when it was introduced.
Once students register, they can immediately start using the website, Beaupré-White said.
If students upload their resume onto the site, they can get feedback and edits directly from Beaupré-White without having to meet with her in person, she said.
“They can access this at any time, it’s at their fingertips,” Beaupré-White said.
