It's time to start your search!

Job searching can be as tiring as scrambling over an obstacle course. On Tuesday, Feb. 28, train yourself to endure the process — and see success — at the Job Search Boot Camp with Texas State’s Career Services from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the LBJ Student Center Ballroom.

Are  you ready for the challenge?

At Tuesday’s event, hear from employers about the importance of interviewing, professional dress, résumé writing and social media networking. Once you’ve been through all the stations, you’ll have the opportunity to execute what you’ve learned by speed interviewing with employers.

What can you do to prepare for the Job Search Boot Camp as well as your job search? See some resources below, and good luck, Bobcats!

1. Put the “me” in résumé.

Put your best foot forward with resources on the Texas State Career Services website, including: an example résumé, helpful links, and a 48-hour online review service. Catch more tips at the Job Search Boot Camp with opportunities to get feedback from employers.
