Ali DiBona, the Senior Associate Director of LIU Promise, reached out to The Pioneer recently to clarify that the Promise program, which was established on campus just last fall, is now offering career services to students. The LIU Promise office is located on the second floor of Hillwood Commons, room 270.
The new initiative, called Career Success, is replacing the Office of Career Services that was formerly located on the second floor of Kumble Hall. Career Success offers the same services as that of Career Services; the LIU Promise coaches work one-on-one with students to find them the right internships, as well as launch students’ career paths by connecting them with employers before graduation.
“We have an upcoming workshop series that will be great for students,” DiBona said. The series is called “How I Met My Career,” and consists of three seminars that focus on how to land an internship, make your résumé stand out to employers, and how to ace your interview. The string of lectures is based off the popular television sitcom “How I Met Your Mother.”
“Challenged Accepted,” which will teach students how to find the right internship, will take place on Oct. 13, 20, and 28. The “Legendary” workshop offers tips and tricks on how to perfect your résumé, and make you a standout amongst other job candidates; the seminar takes place on Oct. 14, 21, and 29. The last seminar, “Suit Up” will give students a crash course in acing a job interview, and takes place on Oct. 15, 22, and 30. All seminars will be held in the B. Davis Schwartz Memorial Library, room 386, from 1 p.m. to 1:50 p.m.
