That Could Be Me: Women in STEM Panel

REG15001_WomensHistoryMonth-STEMLecture_11x17Poster_FINAL-WEB


According to the United States Economic Committee, over the next decade, the economy will need nearly one million more STEM professionals than the US will produce at the current rate.  Due to the high demand for STEM- capable workers, wage and employment prospects for individuals with these skills are excellent.  Even so, not enough Americans are studying in these fields.  Women and minorities are underrepresented in the STEM workforce.

You are invited to attend the “Women in STEM” presentation on March 25 at 5:00 in Main Hall 333.  Hear stories about their journeys, successes and challenges in the fields.

Find a Mentor for Your Career Development

Whether you are searching for a job, attempting to advance your career, or looking to go back to school, seek a mentor for guidance. If you’re wise in selecting a mentor, that person most likely has gone through the same situation that you’re going through now. He or she can provide you with advice gained through experience.

A mentor can also serve as a connector to other professionals within your industry that can help in your job search or career development. An effective mentor should have an extensive network that can help support your professional needs.

Here’s an article written a week ago that discusses the merits of a mentor and how to find one: http://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/outside-voices-careers/2012/06/19/how-to-find-a-mentor-and-why-you-need-one-

What is a CV?

What is a CV?

Many clients come to our office asking “what is a CV?” and “what is the difference between a resume and a CV?”  In a nutshell, the purpose of a resume is to convey one’s work experience, education and applicable skills in the most concise format possible.  A CV, or curriculum vitae (Latin for “course of one’s life”), is typically longer in length (at least 2 pages) and includes:

  • Teaching Experience
  • Research Projects
  • Published Works
  • Professional and Educational Presentations
  • Academic Awards and Honors
  • Professional Affiliations

In the United States, A CV is primarily used only by those applying for positions in academia, science and/or research, or by those applying for grants and fellowships.

If you need assistance preparing your resume or CV, contact Regis University Career Services to schedule an appointment at 303-458-3508, or go to regis.edu/careerservices and click on “Schedule an Appointment”.
