Pinning for Business
As many of you may have seen via Facebook or Twitter, the Rawls CMC has started a Pinterest page!
Right here —-> Click me!
The CMC is utilizing Pinterest to visually show students career advice, whether it be the difference between business professional and business casual, or financial advice. Pictures are worth a thousand words, and pictures that link back to a useful website that can be used as a resource later? Well, that is worth a lot more than just a thousand words!
So ask yourself, would you rather be told what the difference is between Business professional/casual, or be SHOWN? We agree, being shown is much more helpful.
How to Ace an Interview
Welcome back everyone! Today we have an amazing article that we found on www.lifehacker.com. This article details a lot of very important information regarding interviewing for a job, and most of this information can and should be applied to mock interviews as well.
The author of this article is Elisabeth Fosslien, an analyst at the ad agency Leo Burnett, who turns data into art and observations into charts on her website fosslien.com. She does an amazing job if we do say so ourselves.
Everything written below is the work of Elisabeth Fosslien mentioned above.
Today we wanted to share with you a video we put together showing students the sign up process for mock interviews within RawlsCONNECT. Tell us what you think in the comments below! Hope it helps!
Also, check back tomorrow for our post on common interview questions and how to effectively tackle them.

Welcome back students!

Reed is no longer with us, and Laura and I have moved into different roles. Please stop by BA 119 and meet your new career adviser when you get the chance. Here is the new breakdown:
