Summer Is Coming!

The first episode of Game of Thrones dropped on Sunday and for many it’s another reminder that summer (not winter) is coming and your new job or internship is patiently waiting for you on the other side of spring. It might also be a reminder to send out a few more job applications this week.

Either way, keep up the grind and don’t forget that there are countless resources available to you at the Career Center that will help you in your process. When was the last time you met with a career counselor?
