Career Camp

Landing an internship or that important first job after college requires basic skills to effectively engage with prospective employers. The College of Arts and Sciences and the Office of Career Services are offering second- and third-year students an intensive professional skills program to prepare you for success after graduation.

Sophomores and juniors with at least one major in the College can attend Career Camp, two half-day virtual workshops intended to give you a head start on achieving your career goals. The program is sponsored by Reynolds and Reynolds — an industry leader in automotive technology and digitization, and a top employer of UD graduates.

Scheduled near the end of winter break, Career Camp provides professional skills training, interactive workshops and networking opportunities with UD alumni to prepare you to capitalize on internship and career opportunities.

Career Camp will feature workshops and discussions on:

  • Writing resumes and cover letters
  • Creating LinkedIn profiles
  • Interviewing tips, both virtual and face-to-face
  • Internships and graduate school planning
  • Networking 101
  • Professional communication
  • Dressing for success, in-person and on Zoom
  • Marketing your arts and sciences experiences

Students also will be able to hone their new skills and engage with UD alumni during a networking webinar.
