Welcome back to campus everyone! We hope you had a wonderful winter break full of sleep and lots of homemade food.
Please keep in mind that TODAY (January 11th) is the last day to add classes/credits. So if you’d like to register an internship for credit, be sure to have that paperwork in to us by 5pm! However, we understand that things don’t always go according to plan, or you can’t always get in touch with the right people to sign off on the internship by the deadline, so if you get us your paperwork as quickly as possible next week (the week of the 14th), we’ll make sure you get the credits you need! If Wendy or Teresa are out for meetings, just slide all of your paperwork under Teresa’s door. It’s room 210 in Thomas Library’s COMPASS Sweet Success Center.
And before you completely dive into the semester, make sure that you add these Career Services-related events into your calendars or phones!
- There’s an OFIC CareerFest in Columbus on Friday, February 1st from 10:00am-2:00pm at the Ohio Expo Center’s Kasich Hall. Show up in your best professional attire with your resume to see what kinds of jobs you can find in Ohio and all over the country! You can check out the companies that will be there by clicking on this link: https://www.ofic.org/careerfest/2019/registered-companies

- The following week, on Thursday, February 7th, is our Graduate/Professional School Fair! That’ll be from 11:50am-2:00pm in Geil Lounge (the lower level of the Student Center), and we recommend that you wear business casual in order to impress all of those recruiters!
- On Thursday, February 21st, we’ll have our Job and Internship Fair from 11:50am-2:00pm in Geil Lounge (lower level of the Student Center). We strongly recommend that you bring your resume or business card (which you can make here in the Career Services Office!) and dress in business casual so that you can make a lasting impression on the recruiters that you visit.
- Finally, on Wednesday, March 20th, we will host our annual Etiquette Dinner! This is an event that you must register for, but you can do so by calling 937-327-7521, stopping into our office at Room 210 in the COMPASS Sweet Success Center, or through a link that we’ll be sending out closer to the event. You won’t want to miss Terri Thompson, the Etiquette Consultant, teaching you how to handle professional situations that involve food!
On a side note… If you did something AWESOME last semester or over break, we would LOVE to hear about it! At Wittenberg, we value your learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom. Your experiences at internships are opportunities for you to see how your hard work relates to the outside world and we would appreciate hearing about your accomplishments! Please tell us about your internship so that your academic department, the alumni, and prospective students can see the amazing things you have done!
