"Not-so-recent college graduates are demanding more career assistance from their former schools as they face tougher employment markets."
This is according to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal about alumni taking advantage of their alma maters' career services offices.
While the article quotes one job search expert as saying that many schools offer weak services to alumni in the fields of medicine, law and journalism, we beg to differ - at CAPS three innovative programs - Chicago Careers in Health Professions, Chicago Careers in Law and Chicago Careers in Journalism - all offer specialized career advising services to students AND alumni interested in these fields, including one-on-one advising, workshops addressing the ins and out of these career paths, and the chance to connect with doctors, lawyers and journalists who know what working in each of these industries is really like.
Individuals interested in learning more about these programs should contact CAPS at (773) 702 - 7040, and make an appointment with one of our pre-prefessional counselors.
Alumni, whether recent graduates, or more experienced alums who are looking for a career change, are encouraged to contact CAPS and take advantage of our services.
Happy 4th of July Weekend from CAPS! We'll see you on Monday.
