Curry's Career Services Newsletter


September Edition Vol. 1 2015

Dear Students,

As you read through the local opportunities, the job section, the internship section, and the fellowship section do not forget to check out the right column as there are many valuable resources such as job websites, workshops, and University Career Services events. 

If you receive information regarding opportunities (workshops, presentations, job/internship listings) from previous employers that would be helpful to share with the Batten Community, please forward the details to Barbara Hampton so we can include it in the Frankly Speak Newsletter instead of using the Batten class listservs. This will allow us to keep all career related information in one central location for students to easily access and reduce the number of e-mails that are sent regarding job/internship opportunities
