When Should My Student Visit Career Services?

Trinity University Career Fair

by Twyla Hough —

Greetings, all! As Trinity prepares to welcome new and returning students to campus next month, my mind returns to the 2015 Trinity Bunch video recorded last summer.

This five-minute video shares campus information in the style of the television sitcom, the “Brady Bunch,” and although a few roles have changed in the past year, such as Dr. Sheryl Tynes’ recent promotion to Vice President of Student Affairs, I believe there is still much to be gleaned from it. Please note that the registration dates on the video are incorrect; registration this year will be Aug. 22-23.

In fact, as the director of the Office of Career Services, I encourage you to pay special attention to my advice in the video for all students to visit the Center for Experiential Learning & Career Success sooner than later to meet with their career advisor for career planning and exploration, including information on applying for graduate school. As parents, you will continue asking yourself questions related to your child's career. My simple advice is to encourage your child to visit our office, get involved, make connections through internships, and really explore all the city (and our Tiger alumni network) have to offer. It is never too early.

To help bring advice and tips to you, we've created a YouTube playlist that will continue to be a source for career information. Hope you enjoy watching! If you have suggestions on topics, let me know.

Current students and alumni can schedule an appointment by logging into Hire a Tiger at hireatiger.trinity.edu. Additionally, our office can be reached at 210-999-8321 or careerservices@trinity.edu if assistance is needed. Trinity's Career Services team is here to help equip students to actively explore, strategically plan, and successfully launch into their personalized career journey.

All of us at Trinity, especially the Career Services team, look forward to meeting you to celebrate #TigerPride.
