Christopher Newport loves when students get jobs. There is a huge emphasis on teaching students proper interview etiquette, resume building and other helpful tips to be successful in the workforce. Even during welcome week, almost every presentation from different departments on campus talked about offering jobs, and encouraged students to apply. As a student, working on-campus is ideal. They are very understanding of your class schedule, and your place of work is never too far away.
This all sounds great, but how can you get one? Well, as I said, Christopher Newport works really hard to set its students up for success. For example, the university hosts an annual career fair where prospective companies visit to talk to the students about opportunities. There also fairs for exclusively on-campus jobs. The university informs the student of lots of opportunities, so there are many choices to consider.
Though, Christopher Newport does even more. Seminars for resume building, first impressions and interview etiquette are commonplace. There will usually be one or more each month. In addition, the Center for Career Planning’s door is always open. You can schedule an individual appointment to address any concerns you have.
