Augsburg Works: Career Readiness Events and Programs

submitted by

Did you know that 71% of employers will be hiring 2020 interns and new employees during the fall semester?

Many of our students do not realize employers have early recruitment timelines. In fact, some employers start recruiting as early as August! Many employers will be making final hires by early November so it is crucial for Augsburg students to be aware they need to act now.

The Strommen Center is teaming up with departments, student organizations, and colleagues across campus to launch Augsburg Works, Sept 11- Oct 18, to ensure all students are aware of employer recruitment timelines and are prepared for the application process.

All event and program information can be found on Handshake.

Are you hosting any professional development or career readiness events for students?
The Strommen Center has received a number of events and programs from other departments that are helping students prepare for employment opportunities.

If you are hosting any program or event please let us know so we can share all the great ways Augsburg students are being prepared for the world of work.
