Lauren’s Expert Career Advice

What is the best advice you could give to a job seeker today?

Your job is to get a job. Spend at least 6-8 hours per day on the job search. Bookmark every “target” company on their website and all of their social platforms and monitor them daily. Make sure you are constantly letting everyone in your personal and professional network know that you are looking for a job.

How do you stay updated in the career advising/HR industry?

I participate in panel discussions, track news alerts and current events in the career space, and just try to constantly engage in dialogue with both students, job seekers, and recruiters to get the latest and greatest.
