"Yeah, going to Career Education and Vocational Reflection Office is important, but that can wait until my senior year." Can it?
Results show that the more frequently a senior used career services, the more likely he/she would receive a job offer. Just under 29 percent of those who received job offers had not used the career center-meaning the remaining 71 percent with offers were career center users.
In addition, the study found that the likelihood of getting a job offer increased with the frequency of use, so that those who used the career center four or more times a semester were more likely to have job offers than those who used it once a semester.
Among those who had used the career center, the most services they were most likely to use were:
Resume writing help was not only the most used service, but also the most highly rated in terms of its helpfulness, followed by practice interview sessions (used only by a handful of users), job listings, and individual career counseling.
