The Hale Center for Career Development partners with the Academic Resource Center (ARC) on an intensive one-week program every January. Students learn directly from professionals through presentations and open engagement during a series of workshops and seminars run almost exclusively by alumni representing a range of disciplines.
And one more thing
The most important resource is your own time. A job search or graduate school application process is equivalent to the time commitment of taking another class. Expect to commit a couple of hours per day, totaling several hours per week, to the process in order to achieve your goals.
