Senior Seminar Workshop Recap

Last night, I had the opportunity to facilitate a senior seminar workshop along side Suzanne Dagger, Interim Executive Director of The Career Center. The goal of the senior seminars is to help prepare students for life after graduation and I think they are a great idea. Our seminar covered basic resume and cover letter writing, interviewing skills, and writing personal statements for graduate school. 

I had so much fun giving the workshop mostly because the students were engaged and thinking. It’s always so rewarding when students walk away from my presentations having learned something new and valuable. Given that senior year of college is such a pivotal time in the life of a college student, I can only hope that my presentation helped to make the transition as smooth and unintimidating as possible. On that note, I encourage ALL seniors to visit The Career Center with any questions or concerns. We are happy to help you and would love to help make your last year at Hofstra the best one yet! 

Thank you to everyone who attended last night and a special shout out to Robyn Kaplan, Associate Director for Student Leadership and Activities, for putting together the senior seminars! 

Kaitlyn Riley, Assistant Director
