STUDENTS WANT TO KNOW -Taken from the June 2013 Alumni View
“What advice do you have for students that are about to graduate?” – Sarah ‘13
Be very sure you have contact information for all of the great friends you met at FPU. Everyone says when they graduate that they will "keep in touch" but it is much more difficult then you can imagine trying to coordinate schedules and visits from several states away. The people you meet in college are the closest friends you'll likely have your entire life. Treasure them and enjoy every minute you have left together. Remember, Facebook is your friend! Good luck and congratulations! - Heather Wagner Knox '95
Network, network, network. Regardless of your major, "who you know" is a big part of pursuing work in your field. Reach out to alumni who work in your industry. Follow up and be a professional when getting a job or getting denied for a job. Use the myriad of social networking tools to keep up with what's going on in the professional world. Best of luck. - Joe Gonzalez '94
Stay in touch with your friends, life passes by so quickly and it's sad how you lose touch when you never thought you would. Attend Alumni events to reconnect with those you don't see on a regular basis; the connections you make and those you keep are invaluable to you in ways you cannot imagine now. Network, network, network (which is what alumni events are for). Never stop learning; either through continuing your education, seminars and workshops, continual reading and reflection. Have several copies of your resume prepared, always bring an original to an interview, dress to impress and of course, clean up your FB and all other social media sources as they are checked by potential employers. Have two accounts if need be. Be proud of your accomplishments but not too proud to take a job that starts you at entry level. You'll advance faster than someone without a degree. There's something to be said for knowing every job in a company when you're the Managing Director! Congratulations Class 2013!!!!!- Valerie Kennedy '91
