The Career Services Webinar Series is back, ready to help alumni who are looking for a new job or ways to take control of their careers.

The Alumni Association launched the series last year, with speakers offering tips on everything from how to write a an eye-catching resume to how to make better use of online services such as LinkedIn. The series was a success, with alumni able to tap into a network of experts without having to leave the convenience of their computer.

“We had really good numbers,” says Catherine Tuttle, career services coordinator for the Alumni Association.

The instructor is Jeffrey Miller, the head quantitative GMAT instructor for Target Test Prep. The webinar is free and open to all alumni, but registration is required.

Other webinars planned for this year will cover subjects such as public speaking skills, how to effectively use recruiting agencies and managing your online presence. A complete list of this year’s webinars can be found here.

“We’re trying to reach as many people as we can,” says Tuttle. “This gives them information they can use to advance their career or make a shift in their career.”
