My Career Search: Week 5

April 13, 2009

Hi everyone,

Here’s the video for Week 5 of my career search!  With graduation only about 4 weeks away, the days seem to be going faster and faster, but I’m still doing everything I can to secure a position following graduation.

A couple weeks ago I visited Staffing Solutions, Inc., a local placement firm in St. Louis, to interview them about the St. Louis job market.  It was a great opportunity because they had some fantastic suggestions for job seekers like me.

My Career Search: Week 4

April 3, 2009

Hi everyone,

Week 4 of my career search is wrapping up, so it’s time for another video!

I’ve been checking out a lot of company websites, and more often than not there aren’t any openings. It’s tempting to get frustrated or discouraged, but instead I’m going to take this time to do my research and to make sure when the job market improves, I’m ready.


My Career Search: Lauren Schwarze, Week 3

March 27, 2009

Hi everybody,

It’s the end of Week 3 of my career search, so here’s another video!  I had a lot of schoolwork this week, so I didn’t get a chance to apply to as many companies as I wanted–my goal is 5 per week–but I did have the chance to do some research so I can send in more resumes this weekend.

I still haven’t heard back from the companies I’d applied to over spring break, but I’m staying optimistic–I need to apply to as many places as I can, and I can’t lose my focus.


My Career Search: Lauren Schwarze, Week 2

March 20, 2009

Hi everyone,

It’s week 2 of my career search, so here’s another video.  Last week was spring break, and I took the time off to apply to 15 jobs.  Unfortunately, the only response I got was to tell me that one of the companies I’d applied to wasn’t hiring. 

At first, I was pretty disappointed, but I’m not going to let it get me down.  I’m going to stay positive, and I’m going to keep trying and keep applying to jobs.
