As many can imagine the first two weeks of school can be hectic and exciting. As I begin my role as SOAR’s Program Development & Marketing Intern, I am slowly easing into my new responsibilities and trying to stay organized. The program is currently preparing for the Internship Panel which will be Wednesday, September 16th from 9AM-5PM. Those participating in the panel are current Ashland University student who had an internship this past summer. Students will be speaking in groups starting at the top of the hour and will be sharing some of their experiences they had encountered.
Another aspect of my position is the mentor/mentee program that allows current students and recent graduates to connect with an AU alum that has had years of experience and would like to be a support for students. Our mentors are here to assist for any questions that the student may come across during their internship or job search. In addition, the mentors are designed to be a resource for assisting with resumes or even giving small tips on how to conduct oneself during an interview process.
I am truly very exciting be a part of the Career Services team and look forward to learning the ins and outs of the SOAR Program.
Happy Labor Day!
