“What can I do with a major in.?” Fill in the blank. As students approach their graduation they may not know the answer to this question, but there are many resources to help on and off of campus for Cabrini College’s students and alumni.
Walking into the co-op offices of Cabrini College students may be thrown into something new and exciting without even recognizing it at first. There are bulletin boards to assist students with writing a resume, what kinds of jobs a person can get with their type of major and even a wide selection of job openings that the college has connections with.
Students walk out of Cabrini College every spring and many do not know what kind of career is before them. For instance, business majors have many choices to choose from when choosing a career. According to http://careers.cua.edu/explore/businessresources.htm, business majors can choose to work in marketing, human resources, finance, economics or accounting. And the website gives sources of job listings to further help graduates find the job for them.
For political science majors, choices for a prized career include law, business, journalism, public and international affairs, federal government, teaching, campaign management and many others. (http://www.polsci.wvu.edu/polsci/career/careers.html) This website also gives good information to those deciding on a major and what kinds of degrees are needed for that particular field.
Sue Farrell, the secretary in the co-op center, is very willing to help any student who is looking for a co-op. Farrell explained, “All examples on these bulletin boards are put up on our website for the students to look at, and our resumes are also included there so students can just enter their information into the resume without creating one from scratch.”
Communication majors have a very broad menu to choose from for their careers. Some of these careers include advertising, communication, education, electronic media/radio-television/broadcasting, journalism, (print or electronic) public relations and theatre/performing arts/dramatic arts. These were found on the website http://www.natcom.org/Instruction/Pathways/5thEd.htm, which also gives related fields to communications which are not limited to: business, government and politics, health careers and law.
Signing up for a co-op is easy. Just visit the Co-op Career Services Center located in Grace Hall diagonal to the Admissions and Financial aid offices. Sue Farrell will give any forms or explanations needed and send you on your way to a new experience in the professional world.
