Career Services holds first meet and greet of the year

Grambling State University Office of Career Services held its first Meet and Greet on Monday, August 31, 2015 in the AC Lewis Library.  Dr. Shelia Fobbs, director, said approximately 80 students attended the event.   “We wanted to use this as an opportunity to inform students of new policies that are being implemented and to let students know that they will be required to attend new sessions in January,” explained Fobbs.  Kristopher Brooks, a sociology major from Bastrop, said that he attended the event because he wanted to learn how to better manage and how to become more responsible.

Students and faculty were treated with cookies and punch as student workers and other student assistants gave tours, distributed flyers and shared information about the various services of  erson, a biology major from Arcadia, said that students who use the Center’s services can gain more insight about careers. 

The event was also a way of letting students know about the Center’s new location and services.  When asked why Career Services relocated to the library.  Fobbs stated that it was the previous administration’s idea.  Many students were not using the library and they believed that moving the Center to the library would generate more traffic.  

Activities scheduled for September include “Putting the ME in ResuME,” “How to Ace The Interview,” Dressing,” “You Dictate the Message,” “48th Annual Lonnie Smith Career Fair,” “Shreveport Police Department Informational Session,” “Back2Basics Series/Pillow Talk Series,” “From Head to Hemlines in Relationships It Matters,” and “Being Social includes the Idea of Etiquette.”

Students can find the Office of Career Services on Facebook, Twitter, and Tiger Works.  They may also contact 318-274-2346 for more information about the Center’s services.
