Here are five ways to get expereince this summer:

1. GET A SUMMER JOB
Lots of businesses hire seasonal workers. These gigs will help you earn some cash and gain experience. And that experience is valuable even if the role is outside of your desired field of expertise.

If you are local to Shreveport, keep your eye on Instagram each week for our FIND A JOB FRIDAY feature, which compiles local internships and jobs.

To uncover opportunities in your geographic area, check out Handshake.

2. WORK ON A CERTIFICATION
Career-specific certifications can help set you apart in the job market. If you need help locating a certification that will help make you more marketable, reach out to Career Services for help.

3. VOLUNTEER
You won’t get paid for the time you put in at a local non-profit or charitable organization, but there are unique benefits to volunteering.

For one, it will signal to future employers that you are pursuing self-enrichment. Additionally, you will build relationships with professionals in the organization for which you volunteer. These individuals can offer guidance about developing key skills for your future and insight about their own career journey.

4. BUILD YOUR ONLINE PRESENCE
Spend your summer making your professional persona visible online. Consider working on your LinkedIn profile, establishing a personal website, or starting a blog. These channels can help demonstrate how well you apply what you know. They can also lead you to the right employer who values what you can offer.

Career Services staff are LinkedIn experts and can help you begin or update your profile. They’ll also help you feel confident you have accurately captured your story.

5. JOB SHADOW
Follow a professional for a day or two to get an idea of how they work and if their job is something you feel is worth pursuing.

Career Services staff can help you brainstorm who you might reach out to. They can also offer guidance about what to say when reaching out, too!

Are you moving toward what matters to you...or moving toward what matters to others?

There are a bajillion opinions about what you should do or be or want. But the opinion that matters most is your own.

Repost from Dr. Jenn Hardy

"It's okay to start where you are. There are many paths to a happy, successful life. Don't rule out options available to you now just because there isn't a clear path from where you are standing to where you want to be."

Contact Career Services to talk it out, too! We can help you develop a plan to get to where you want to go 💜💛
