We hope you all enjoyed the short week that came with the Thanksgiving holiday – now it’s the sprint to the finish and the end of the semester! So…put those leftovers out of your mind and focus on those papers, assignments, and exams. Who needs those silly old turkeys anyway, when there is an infinitely better bird right in front of you? Your favorite bird – in the form of the latest issue of The Pink Flamingo, that is! Happy reading!

P/HD Club: A message from the President, Kaitlyn Florer

Hello PH/D Club members…

As we wrap up the semester, we have only one more activity planned: the Holiday Party! This event will be in one of the Pamperin Hall lounges (the residence hall closest to the Union) on December 8th @ 6:00 p.m.. If you can, come join us for some social time and relaxation before finals! Please let us know if you plan to attend by e-mailing sophd@uwgb.edu. We will be sending out a reminder and more information as the event gets closer.

Thank you members for your participation in this semester’s events! We have many more exciting events and activities coming up in the spring semester, including speakers, volunteer opportunities, and much more!

Career Tip of the Month: May Grads – Start Your Job Search Now!

We are looking forward to celebrating with our December graduates in just a few short weeks. May grads – you’ll be next! It may seem like a long way off, but for those of you who will be headed into the workforce after graduation, it is never too early to begin the job search process. You need to update that resume, draft some cover letters and letters of inquiry, polish up your interviewing skills, and begin thinking about where you will be posting your resume and looking for job openings. You also have one semester still in front of you to build some additional experiences and skills (e.g., start that volunteer position, pick up a new part-time job, take a class particularly relevant to your career goals). A great place to start with thinking through all of this is the Career Services website. Learn more about resumes, cover letters, interviews, and the job search process itself, and while you’re there, check out PRO and the positions currently listed there.
