Dear TWC Parents:
Encourage your son or daughter to visit the Career Development Center early. The Career Development Center can assist students with resume and cover letter writing, graduate school preparation, and job searching skills and techniques.
Emphasize the importance of being involved in student activities and taking on leadership roles. Employers look for active and involved students who have shown a proven track record of leadership skills.
Advise students to obtain valuable work experience preferably in their field of interest. Experience counts in this job market. Grades are not enough to secure a position in the workforce. Internships and summer employment are highly recommended for all students (freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors).
Persuade your child to begin networking with individuals in their desired field. This will require students to begin researching their desired careers and gives them the opportunity to ask questions about their field. This can also lead to job shadowing opportunities.
If you have questions, I invite you to call the office at 423-746-5224 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Director of Career Development
