for winter break
ideas for supporting your career and professional development plans
over your break.
- Update your resume
or CV with accomplishments from this last semester (or
year). Quantify your
experiences and use action and results-oriented language.
- Fine tune
your interests. Employers are
seeking focused candidates – being able to clearly communicate
your interests will help you find opportunities that match
- Log in to Careerolina, UNC's online
database of jobs and internships. Update your profile
and begin your search for that perfect opportunity – there are
currently 211active listings for UNC SPH students!
- Develop cover
letter drafts. Get these ready to
go so you can apply to opportunities as they arise.
- Practice your
“elevator speech.” This is a 20 to
30-second introduction of your interests and skills that you
can use with networking contacts.
- Create a profile on
LinkedIn. Explore this
professional networking resource to make connections with
other Gillings students and alumni.
- Make a time
management plan to continue your career development next
semester. Plan to do
one thing each week.
safe, relaxing, and productive break and a happy holiday season!
