From Thanksgiving to New Years, I don’t think much “work” actually takes place. Instead the days are filled with holiday planning, eating and playing. In our office we always look forward to our white elephant gift exchange as it always ends up being a lot of laughs…for most of us. For the unfortunate one who gets the rubber gloves and old hat, we wish you better luck next year.
We are also humbled and grateful during the season of giving by working together to help those students struggling to make ends meet while attending classes and raising a family. Our admiration goes out to you as you work to make a better life for you and your family in this demanding economy.
As we have returned to the office throughout the week we have spent time updating each other on our holiday events and gifts.
If you have made an appointment to meet with Alex, I suggest grabbing your snuggie and warm drink. You will find yourself nestled next to the new fireplace/heater in his office. A fireside chat might be just what you need to get your career plan in order.
Debbie is the only one who was fortunate enough to attend the Fiesta Bowl. She has chronicled the trip on her Facebook page. Friend her and live the Fiesta Bowl magic all over again! She is now lobbying to have the Broncos invited to the White House. After all, who wouldn’t want to meet the 14-0 Broncos…including the President of the United States?
We are all looking forward to beginning another new year here at the Career Center. We work to remain optimistic about the job market. At this point the reviews are mixed as to whether we are going to see much improvement in the job market or not. In any case, we will continue to help students to become the best possible candidates for those jobs that are out there. While they may be few and far between, they are out there. We already have 26 employers registered for the Career Fair coming up and February 24th and are adding to that list everyday.
Keep working hard and moving ahead. If you need a break contact Alex for some fire time.
