Here's the deal:
We've built a new website just for Beacon students and alumni. Oh yeah, and also for our Allies who will be posting jobs and internships of all kinds. We call it "BeaconConnect" because it's the place for you to connect with your fellow Beacons and with the jobs and employers that are offering them
Oh, so much. You can find jobs, of course. And get help writing your resume from trained pros. And do both real and practice interviews. And find people - both Beacons and professionals - who have experience in different industries and at a range of companies. Connect with them to network, learn more and be on your way. Did we mention discussion forums? And no site would be complete without a Photo Challenge just for fun.
You tell us. Look below for info on what happened this summer when we took it for a test spin.
Just scroll down a little bit more and you can get started.
When the virus hit, we rushed out a limited version of the site to help some of our Alumni get summer jobs and internships. The results speak for themselves. Note that 100% of the participating students received resume coaching, personal branding workshops, and career development advice. Each student met with a volunteer to gain valuable advice to boost their stock in the job market.
