Whether you're thinking of getting a part-time job, need to find an internship or service-learning site, or just need help constructing your first resume (which you need to get to started for all of these things), the Career Development Center can help you. This “power” session will walk you through how to use RamblerLink and give you an overview of the Career Development Center's services and programs including job fairs, student employment, and advising. Join us for this “can't miss” hour of critical information.

Your New World: Cultural Transitions
3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Coffey Hall, McCormick Lounge

As an international student at Loyola, you will experience a new study environment and for most of you, a new country and a new way of life.  We’d like to invite you to a cultural transitions session, where you’ll be introduced to tips on adjusting to life in the Windy City, and to life as a Loyola University Chicago student.  You will meet with your international student advisors, fellow international students, and a panel of returning international students.  Our international student panel will share stories of their lives at Loyola and will answer any questions you may have for them. Hosted by First & Second Year Advising and the Office of International Programs and Services
