Extra Credit for Career Workshop Attendance?

Submitted by Denise Rotavera-Krain, rotavera-krain.1@osu.edu

As we all know, preparing to go on the job market is not a last-minute endeavor. Encouraging students to begin now, will ensure that they are prepared for the job search ahead.

Unfortunately, none of our students attended the workshops on resumes. Two reasons for this could include a timing issue (i.e. they do not realize how early they need to start) or the fact that I worked with several classes last semester on developing strong resumes. Regardless of the reasons, it is imperative that students, especially those entering the workforce or internships this summer, get started now.

Would you be willing to offer extra credit of some kind for attending the next three workshops? I always take attendance and would be happy to report back to you who attended. If this is appealing to you, please contact me at rotavera-krain.1@osu.edu  to let me know.

Thank you so much for your help!
