College of Arts and Sciences Career Camp

Career Camp 2020

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-year students an intensive professional skills program to prepare you for success after graduation.

Sophomore students in the College can attend Career Camp, a three-day series of workshops intended to give you a head start on achieving your career goals.

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

The inaugural Career Camp is January 8-10, 2020, on the University campus. The program is free to attend, but you must apply online to become a participant.

Career Camp will include tours of three innovative Dayton-area employers: Reynolds and Reynolds, CareSource and Real Art Design Group.

Career Camp will feature workshops and discussions on:

  • Writing resumes and cover letters
  • Interviewing tips for success
  • Internships and graduate school planning
  • Professional communication
  • Action plan writing
  • The habits of vocational discernment
  • Translating your liberal arts skills
  • Marketing your liberal arts experiences

Participating students will attend “first impression” sessions to get pointers and feedback on networking, professional dress, handshake and small talk. Students also will be able to hone their new skills at an etiquette dinner and alumni networking event.

Registration is limited to 50 students. Applicants must be Class of 2022 students in the College of Arts and Sciences. The application includes a short essay about why you wish to attend Career Camp and how you think it might benefit your post-graduation plans. The application deadline is November 1.

To apply, please use this online registration form.
