Career Center boosts service accessibility
June 05, 2009
Bryan’s Career Services has made its services more accessible to alumni and employers with jobs to fill.
Marlene Wilkey, director of career planning and corporate relations, said alumni can post their resumes and employers can post job openings on the Career Services community pages, which may be reached through the alumni homepage.
“We are ecstatic about this resource because it will connect alumni and employers in a way we’ve never been able to do before,” Mrs. Wilkey said. “This is a dream come true.”
There is no cost for either employers or alumni to post their items, although alumni must register with Your Membership, if they have not already done so. “That should take about three minutes,” she said. While the system allows alumni and employers to post entries by themselves, Mrs. Wilkey is available should they want assistance. She may be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although the site was launched only recently about 40 job openings have been posted, ranging from summer internships to educational opportunities to a horse wrangler in Colorado. Employers should note that positions will be deleted after 90 days unless other arrangements are made.
“This is a perfect opportunity for Bryan alumni to help new graduates find positions, or to help other alumni who may need new positions in these difficult economic times,” Mrs. Wilkey said.
