Professional Viewpoints 2013 Presents Myriad Career Opportunities to Students

Professional Viewpoints 2013 Presents Myriad Career Opportunities to Students

Next week, students will have an unparalleled opportunity to explore careers in health and human services, public policy and history, the creative arts, and writing and communication. During the Office of Personal & Career Development (OPCD)'s Professional Viewpoints events, students can benefit from the experience of industry professionals from the Dallas Zoo, GE Capital Finance, D Magazine and more from Sept. 16-24.

"We hope students will listen for what's expected of them in those industries and discern what they really want to do," said Julie Janik, OPCD director.

Many of the panelists are UD alumni or individuals with educational backgrounds in the liberal arts.

"The UD community doesn't end with the campus. There is a support structure in place for students as they begin their careers," said Adrian Ramirez, senior career services advisor.

OPCD recently changed its name to reflect the breadth of services they offer to students.

"A college freshman hears the word 'career' and thinks they're not ready yet, but they need to start assessing and evaluating their interests now," said Janik. "'Career' doesn't mean any one thing. For some people it's a mission abroad or graduate school and an academic path."

In addition to panels on specific industries, OPCD also will host mock interviews and a resume writing help desk on Friday, Sept. 20. A full schedule of events is available here. Join the conversation on Twitter with #proviewpoints.
