Decoding Dress Codes

Figuring out what to wear on a daily basis can be challenging. It gets even more difficult when you are dressing for an interview, career fair, internship, first day of work…the list goes on! We hear a lot of you ask about what you should wear (which is great- it shows you’re conscious of having to look professional) but unfortunately there is no single answer to this question. A lot of what to wear is industry based or depends on the situation. For instance for an interview with GE I would wear a suit, no question. But if I were […]

Help, I Have To Submit A Writing Sample!?

Even though most applications require a cover letter and resume there are a few industries and areas that will also ask that you submit a writing sample. During the interview your spoken communication skills are assessed, but since some positions require various forms of written communication, the company may also want evidence of how well you express yourself in written form – in comes the writing sample. While any employer whose position requires writing skills may want samples, writing samples are more common in publishing, public relations, advertising, media, research, and law. If you are a typical college student, your […]

Tip from Forbes: Facebook and Job Search

I wanted to share this great tip I saw in a recent Forbes article on how to build a positive social media profile and avoid being rejected by a potential employer: Always follow the old saying about not posting anything that would make you embarrassed if it were published on the front page of a newspaper. Don’t use Facebook as a forum to vent on everything you hate about life, your job, someone else, or a company – talk to a friend in person if you feel the need to vent. For more tips, here is a link to the […]

Love Your Money? Learn How To Keep It!

Is your dream to swim in your money like Scrooge McDuck? Just me. OK. Either way, you work hard for your money and if you love it as much as I do you’ll at least want to learn how to budget, invest and save as much of it as possible. Budgets in college vary greatly from those in the “real world” and once outside the bubble you’ll also be expected to know how to set up your 401K (or other retirement package), do your taxes…eventually get a mortgage! All this stuff can be overwhelming but if you start learning and […]

What IS a Case Interview?

On-Campus Recruiting is starting back up and I thought now would be a good time to talk about Case Interviews. You may have heard this term thrown around but do you really know what a case interview is? If you are hoping to go into the management, consulting or the investment banking area then you definitely NEED TO KNOW because a case interview will almost definitely be a part of your interview process. In a case interview the job applicant is given a question, situation, problem or challenge and asked to solve it. The case problem  or challenge is often […]

Show Me John Legend

That you did Bucknell, that you did. And now I’m going to take something cool and turn it into career advice. I know…I hope I don’t ruin it for you. Last night I attended the John Legend talk and performance and was blown away, much like the rest of the crowd (at least according to Twitter).  I don’t know if it’s just because I work at the CDC or not but I felt like his talk was very much about careers; not being afraid to take risks, following your passion, trying something new, failing and starting over. His talk had […]

Hollywood is lying to you

It should come as no surprise to you that Hollywood’s portrayal of “real life” is less than real. No that’s being too nice, it’s a flat out farce. Reality TV is anything but reality and shows like Gossip Girl makes it seem like once you get into one Ivy you can go to any of them and internships are easy to walk away from, especially for a frenemy. If anyone here thought these disillusions were based on anything resembling real life then I’m sorry to have to burst your bubble. Why, you may be asking, is this relevant to a […]

Job Search Engine Tips and Suggestions from Indeed.com

We came across this article from our Alumni Career Services office and wanted to share it as we found it was full of some great information. Alison Doyle, from About.com, got to spend some time time talking with Indeed.com’s co-founder and CEO, Paul Forster, about online job searching and how to get the best results when using a job search engine. Paul suggests that, “Job seekers narrow their search as much as possible in order to find jobs that fit their experience, skills, and desired location.” He goes on to say that it makes sense to “Focus on finding exactly […]

Winter Break – Take Us With You!

It’s the last day of finals and the few cars left are packing up, ready to leave our little bubble for Winter Break. But just because you aren’t on campus doesn’t mean that you have to leave the CDC behind you. First of course…take a break! You deserve it. You’ve been working hard and, just like you have to recharge your iPhone, your body needs to recharge its own battery so rest up and don’t feel guilty. At some point of course your parents may start nagging you to get up before 3 pm and people may start asking you […]
