Career Development Center Updates

During the months of March and April, the Career Development Center brought in three professionals to assist with mock interviews with WIU students. Katie Allen from McGladrey, Kevin O’Connor from AgReliant, and Mellisa McMillan (’11) from the Christian County Farm Bureau, all conducted mock interviews with over twenty students. This experience allowed students to get the feel of an actual interview with those companies.  If anyone is interested in assisting with mock interviews or resume reviews, please contact our office at 309-298-1838.

Our office was also involved in the Professional Development Conference hosted by the RPTA department at WIU. This event brought together alumni and students for networking and professional workshops. In addition to this conference, our office facilitated LinkedIn and Resume workshops for many fraternities and sororities on-campus this month, and finished up our Spring Workshops Series with over 25 attendees at our LinkedIn workshop. 

Our office said “good-bye” to two of our graduate assistants who graduated from the College Student Personnel Program. Meagan Savage will be an academic advisor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Suzanna Farner will be a residential coordinator at SUNY-Purchase.  Please welcome them into the WIU Alumni Association community!

Please Save-The-Date for the Fall Career & Internship Fair on October 7th, and the Law Enforcement & Justice Administration Fair on September 16th.
