For those of you who are returning to UT in the fall, this week marks just about the halfway point of the summer. As you look at what remains of your summer break, think back to elementary school and that essay you had to write about “what I did on my summer vacation.” What have you done career-wise this summer?
Hopefully you've had a summer job or internship; if not, it’s not too late to land a job or take the opportunity to volunteer. It will fill up some space on your resume and, better yet, give you some related experience or at least some transferable skills. Have you taken the opportunity to do an informational interview with someone whose job looks like something you would like to do? Most people love to talk about themselves and their jobs, so take a chance and ask some questions! If you’re wondering what to ask, we have some informational interview questions on our website to get you started.
Enjoy the rest of the summer and we look forward to hearing all about what you did, career-wise, on your summer vacation.
