Important Information - On-Campus Employment Hiring Requirements for Students effective Fall 2018

Roanoke College sees opportunities for students to work on campus as an important step in your professional development. As such, it’s important for students to present an appropriate resume as a job candidate, regardless of the setting. Please be aware that all on-campus student job postings to be filled, starting fall 2018 or later, will require that student candidates have an acceptable resume posted on MaroonNet, before the student may be considered for employment. This will not affect students returning to jobs they currently hold on campus, only those hired in new positions that begin Fall 2018 or later. If you are planning to seek new campus jobs that will start with the opening of Fall Semester or later, you need to have your resume ready and posted in advance.

Career Services will hold a number of workshops during the coming weeks, to help students in developing resumes, to provide tips on how to use MaroonNet to best present yourself as a candidate, and to help you learn how to best use MaroonNet overall in a job search. To help us plan the appropriate sized meeting space, please register in advance for one of these workshops. Workshops will be held:
Thursday, March 29, 12-1pm
Wednesday, April 4, 4-5pm
Thursday, April 12, 12-1pm

We will be holding a number of workshops around SIM sessions for new, incoming students, for the same purpose. For returning students who will be on campus this summer and/or live in the local area, you are welcome to attend one of these sessions and need to sign up:
June 17, 5-6pm
June 18, 4:30-5:30pm
June 21, 5-6pm
June 22, 4:30-5:30pm
June 24, 5-6pm
June 25, 4:30-5:30pm
June 28, 5-6pm
June 29, 4:30-5:30pm

To register for any of the above workshops, you may: reply to this message, call 540-375-2303, or stop by Career Services in the Fowler House. Provide the date of the workshop you wish to attend. We will follow up to let you know the locations.

In lieu of attending a workshop, there is a very short (3-4 minute) instructional video, with an accompanying handout packet, on Resume Writing found at this link: Scroll down to the header Job Search Skill Tips, and Resume Writing will be the first in the list. This video, however, does not include information on use of MaroonNet.

Individual assistance in reviewing resumes will also be available by appointment throughout the rest of this semester, as well as during the summer months. Peer Career Advisors are available M-TH, 4-7pm through the last day of spring classes, to meet with students. Career Services staff members are available M-F, 8am-4:30pm. If you’d like to make an appointment, please let us know some days and time ranges that will work for you.

Don’t procrastinate! Plan now to take care of this important task.
