L-Tron was honored to attend this year’s RIT Graduate Career Symposium
L-Tron was invited to sit on the employer panel at this year’s RIT Graduate Career Symposium. The Saunder’s School of Business hosted the Career Symposium on Friday, August 25th. The event was free for all graduate students enrolled in the Saunder’s School at RIT. Other panelists included representatives from our neighbors, eLogic, and the EFPR Group.
Each year, the Saunder’s School of Business hosts the Symposium to help students advance their careers upon graduation. Students learn how to format and structure their resumes, how to utilize various resources throughout their job search, how to leverage Linkedin and Social Media, and how to properly prepare for an interview. This year’s employer panel focused specifically on the interview process. There were great questions surrounding company culture, being authentic in your interview and the best way(s) to follow-up with potential employers. Students were eager to learn what exactly employer’s were looking for in candidates. The panelists tried to drive home the point that students should be selective in their job search, and do some self-reflection to determine what exactly they were seeking in a company, employer or manager. Being a strong cultural fit can be equally (if not more) important than salary, benefits and many other job “perks.”
The RIT Graduate Career Symposium featured a day full of events. Activities included:
- Resume writing
- Handshake training
- Research via the RIT libraries – and assistance with finding employers who want to hire
- Networking lunch
- Linkedin training
- Case interviews
- Employer panel on the interview process
