Career Catalyst Blog: Event Writeups
We will try our best to vary the day and time of the monthly seminar, as we know that course schedules will often conflict. Your coursework is your utmost responsibility so to ensure that you have access to the seminar material, a COS Reporter will take notes at each seminar and write a report that will be made available to anyone who wants it. The write-ups can be found in the Career Catalyst Events Tab. However, we strongly encourage all who can attend to take advantage of this unique opportunity to network with the speaker and to meet other BGE students who have similar career goals as you!
If you’d like to write up an event, please email Julia Sosenko at firstname.lastname@example.org for your assignment. Many policy, marketing, and science writing managers often assess your lay language written communication skills before making their hiring decisions. These types of reports are great to develop and showcase those skills!
