Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

You have explored various career paths, gained valuable skills and experience and developed your brand. It’s time to put it all together and take that next step!

Job Search

The CIC has partnered with Handshake to bring thousands of job postings right to you! Based on your search criteria Handshake can help connect you with your next opportunity. There are many alums using Handshake to recruit and want to hire new grads just like you!

Tapping into your network or the Norwich network is just as critical as applying online. Having an internal reference at a company is a great way to get in through the “back door.”

Speaking of references, who are you using as your references? Unlike written letters of recommendation, people who serve as references are often called by a potential employer to “vouch” for your skills, character and experience!

Using social media can certainly help speed up your job search. Dare to be different and you will be noticed! Remember, it is all about differentiating yourself and marketing your brand!

Be sure to follow up with the employer about the status of your application. Don’t forget to send a thank you note after each of your interviews to reiterate your interest in the position!

For more strategies and tips to conduct a successful job search and more about choosing references, check out the resource section on Handshake!

Job Offer

Congratulations! You got the offer now what?

Negotiating a job offer can be scary and daunting for most people. The good news is that they want you! It is important to create a mutual benefit for both you and the employer! There is a right way and a wrong way to handle this dance so let the CIC help you!

Big Interview has an awesome salary negotiation video series in the practice section. It will serve as a great tool to navigate this process. We have some great information about how to handle a negotiation process in the Resource section of Handshake along with a sample counteroffer letter.

Graduate School Search

Rather than entering the workforce or the military about 10% of our graduates head back to school. Depending upon your career goals, many schools will want you to have some post graduate experience before enrolling into a master program. Be sure to know what you want to pursue otherwise you may be going for the wrong reasons. Below are some great resources that will help you determine what program is right for you, how you will pay for it, when to start the process and how to apply!

  • Checklist – Be sure you have covered all of the bases when applying.
