Internship, Career and Grad School Prep

  • JAN 21: Career Fair Prep Webinar

    • 1/21 Career Fair Prep for Neurodiverse Students

      We are excited to announce a two-part webinar: Career Fair Prep for Neurodiverse Students. Career Consultant Wiley Dawson will talk you through the steps of creating an awesome résumé, portfolio, and elevator pitch as a neurodiverse student.

      You’ll learn how to showcase your unique strengths and talents as a neurodiverse learner while also maintaining the conventions that employers seek. Discussion will include alternate résumé formats and how to put your best foot forward at a virtual career fair.

      This series is the first of its kind at UConn and will be hosted by the Center for Career Development in collaboration with the INCLUDE program, a neurodiversity initiative of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

      We hope to see you there! There will be time for Q & A during the webinar. Please bring your questions!
