Along my long and checkered career development path, I've had some ups and downs. I would have long periods of work stability and then the unfortunate effects of a recession would knock me off track for a while. However, the one continuing advantage I carried with me was the power of my college education. More specifically, in light of this blog chapter, it was the networking potential of my university's career services office that gave me a lift when I needed it.
For those of you college graduates reading this, who may have been affected by the past year's economic downturn, I urge you not to forget to explore the opportunities offered by the alumni placement/career services office of your alma mater.
