Monday at 7:00 p.m. in Main Hall 168, students and faculty are invited to attend the Association of Women and Men in Communication (AWMC) to team up with Target, Inc. Together they will be hosting a workshop on interviewing skills and techniques, as well as information on resume building. It is open to all majors.”AWMC is a professional organization that champions the advancement of women and men across all communication disciplines by recognizing excellence, promoting leadership and positioning its members at the forefront of the evolving communication era,” according to the Web site.
“A lot of education is received outside of the classroom and our organization allows students to network, build their resumes and focus in on a career path that matches their field of interest,” Vice-President Jessica Schlener said.
The workshop will include discussions on interviewing tips and techniques, as well as an overview on the writing of a resume. Target, Inc. will offer internship information and also job information available through the vast employer. Those attending will be invited to ask any questions regarding the interviewing process, resumes and the opportunities Target has to offer in a question/answer session.
A major factor recommended by many employers that AWMC has found is that many professionals advise interviewees to have something that sets them apart from the other applicants on their resume. After the interview, be proactive and follow-up.
The workshop will be sponsored by Target to help educate students about the company and its career opportunities. It is also a Students Actively Involved in Leadership-approved event.
If anyone is interested in a career with Target, the workshop would be an excellent start to gaining familiarity to the company’s hiring process.
AWMC currently has about 40 members and is open to all students. Contact President Casey Callahan at CC574465@wcupa.edu or Schlener at JS628205@wcupa.edu for more information.
Joining is simple and provides many other opportunities towards becoming active and furthering knowledge in communication. The Association can be looked up on Facebook as “The Association of Women & Men in Communication.”
The workshop is a chance to gain familiarity with post-graduation. Even if a person is years away from job hunting, learning early can always be an advantage.
“This workshop will be a great opportunity for students to learn what future employers are looking for,” Callahan said.
If anyone is interested, attend the workshop. This event will contain plenty of valuable information, and AWMC looks forward to your attendance.
