(1)

The department serves as a major link between students/Alumni and potential employers. We are here to assist students in identifying and fulfilling their future goals and aspirations. Students receive support in creating professional documents (resumes, cover letters, and social media profiles) and learning effective interview and job search techniques. We offer a variety of opportunities to come face to face with hiring employers and graduate school recruiters at career fairs, employer workshops, information sessions, and at campus recruiting events. All students and alumni are welcome to register with our office. To register, visit: https://athens-csm.symplicity.com/students/

Thought for the week:
“The first week of August hangs at the very top of the summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color. Often at night there is lightning, but it quivers all alone. There is no thunder, no relieving rain. These are strange and breathless days, the dog days, when people are led to do things they are sure to be sorry for after.”

Self-Care Tips for Uncertain Times

Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly is upsetting.
Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Focus on eating healthy, well-balanced meals.
Exercise regularly and get plenty of sleep. Take good care of your body.

Solitude is important. – Speaking to someone can help, but in moderation. Sometimes the moments you feel lonely are the moments you may most need to be by yourself. This is one of life’s cruelest ironies. We need solitude, because when we’re alone we’re detached from obligations, we don’t need to put on a show, and we can hear our own thoughts and feel what our intuition is telling us. And the truth is, throughout your life there will be times when the world gets real quiet and the only thing left is the beating of your own heart. So you’d better learn the sound of it, otherwise you’ll never understand what it’s telling you. (Many thanks to marcandangel.com) Need to talk? Contact Lisa at [email protected]
