Whether you're in high school or college, a job is probably part of your future plans. It seems to be the natural progression--graduate high school, go to college, get a job.
Of course, there are all kinds of twists and turns to make this progression unique. It certainly won't look the same for every person, but unless you are gifted with extraordinary life circumstances, you'll probably be looking to land a job in the next few years.
With that realization comes one word...."YIKES!" I'm in that stage of life now, where the familiar structure of school is quickly coming to an end. My last few months of college are going by way too fast, and soon I'll step off campus and be expected to get a job.
Those three letters "J-O-B" can seem intimidating and much scarier we'd like to admit. Let's be real--the unknown is a strange place--but take heart! It's also manageable, valuable, and beneficial. MC understands how daunting and overwhelming the task of starting a career can be, and so they created Career Day as a way to give back to their students.
Career Day is a resource developed by Mississippi College to make the transition from college-world to work-world a little easier.
This year, MC has invited nearly 80 potential employers from around the state to come network with students for future jobs and internships. These recruiters are coming from the Baptist Health Services, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Mississippi, Northwestern Mutual, WLBT-TV 3, government agencies, military branches, school districts, and other companies from around Mississippi.
These employers will set up booths around Anderson Hall, above the Caf, and will be available to mingle with students, discuss possible job opportunities, and connect students with the right people.
If you're interested in networking and building relationships with potential employers, come to Career Day TODAY from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m in Anderson Hall above the Caf. Current students and recent alumni are welcome to attend!
