If You Want a Good Job, Promote Yourself
by Bob Roth - May, 2013
The best employers keep their ears to the ground and listen for rumblings about college students who are getting things done. These employers maintain contact with professors, campus leaders, newspapers and community leaders, in order to stay on top of the “goings on” of students who are making an impact on and off campus. They want to learn of these students as early as possible, so they can follow their progress. In some cas...

by Bob Roth - May, 2013
As many as 50% of all college students will graduate without a job offer.

What Will You Earn When You Graduate?
by Bob Roth - May, 2013
You probably know students who say that they do not care what they earn, as long as they are doing something they love. However, you also know that money matters. When you graduate and start working, the money you earn is what you will live on and pay your bills with. How much money will you need each month to live the life that you would like? What would your life be like if your earned $1000, $2000, $3000, $4000, $5000 o...
Your Resumé Is You
by Bob Roth - Apr, 2013
Most employers learn about college students from their resumés. Whatever is on the resumé is all they know about the student. Therefore, if the resumé has few examples of accomplishments and successes, the employer will have little reason to interview the candidate. Since employers use the resumé as a screening device, your resumé is you. In the end, employers are interested in only one thing. They want to learn abo...
Is Your College Committed
by Bob Roth - Jan, 2013
What does it look like when your college is fully committed to student employment success? As they say, “You will know it when you see it.” When your college is fully committed to student employment success, everyone in the entire college community (not just the Career Services Office) is both responsible for and accountable for helping students learn about, prepare for, find and land good jobs.

Your in-person introduction should be five to seven specifically crafted sentences that ...

“Putting Student Employment Success First” When you select your major you may very well be selecting a career direction and a list of jobs for which you may qualify.

Dreams Are Not Achieved By Dreaming
by Bob Roth - Aug, 2012
Do not get me wrong. Dreaming about your future is good. All college students should have someplace they are trying to go, something they are trying to achieve. However, students should also understand that dreams are not achieved by dreaming. Success is rarely achieved by chance. When students apply the wrong approaches, they are setting themselves up for failure. They frequently choose a direction or approach that is...

by Bob Roth - Jul, 2012
