Job Search Resources Abound at CCAP
The Center for Career and Academic Planning (CCAP) provides a broad spectrum of services and resources for graduating seniors. From building an impressive résumé to developing a strategic job search, and practicing interviewing to negotiating job offers, CCAP advisors are well prepared to guide seniors through these sometimes-complicated steps into adulthood.
The Center offers several events every year, including the Annual Career Fair, Mock Interview Day, Mentor in Residence days, a Job Search Boot Camp, employer site visits, and an Etiquette Dinner; all to give students confidence as they move forward in their lives after Fisher.
In addition, students have access to several CCAP resources, including Handshake (Fisher’s career management tool), CareerShift (a job aggregator), and industry research guides in Vault (a career research database). Advisors are available to review career documents, conduct mock interviews, and even review job offers with students.
A critical piece of senior year is completing the First Destination Survey, which asks seniors to report what they are doing at the point of graduation, whether that is working, going to graduate school, taking a gap year, or other options. Especially important for seniors whose initial outcome is unclear or unresolved, completing the First Destination Survey will trigger CCAP to reach out and offer free career coaching to help new alumni successfully launch into post-college lives.
The First Destination Survey opened one month prior to graduation; and seniors have been asked to complete the survey through various email reminders, as well as at cap and gown pick-up during Senior Week.
