    The university boasts exceptional resources for students, and Career Services’ push to make advising more personalized falls right into line.

    Having an adviser for each of the university’s colleges is a great idea. Students will now know exactly where to go if they have questions about résumés, job interviews or entering the professional field. Those things are often stressful enough for students without having to navigate multiple offices to find who they need to talk to for answers to their questions.

    With the overhaul of Career Services should come advisers who are knowledgeable in different job markets and work fields. Students will be able to get specific advice that is relevant to where they want to go after they graduate. Also, they might be able to make more network connections through those advisers before they leave the university. In this case, any little bit helps.

    Career Services has put the ball back in the students’ court by making it easier to take advantage of its services. Now students must recognize the resources that are being provided by the university and actually use them. After all, if students do not have the initiative to seek out ways to make themselves more marketable now, the job hunting will only be more difficult down the road.
