The job search can be one of the most challenging experiences that someone has to go through. Having a great resume is one of the main keys that will put you in front of a recruiter. During one of my classes my professor, who use to work in Human Resources, said that on average a recruiter would spend 5 seconds looking at a resume. These 3 steps are going to better your chances at impressing at first glance!
As my time here at Ohio University is coming to a close, the burning question that everyone wants to ask arises; what do you want to do now? Since I’m graduating in December of 2015 I still have some time to decide where I want to start my career path, so my close relatives and friends can stay off of my back for a little while. When people do ask, I tell them that my ultimate dream job is to work for Nike headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon.
My name is Molly Harrigan. I am in my senior year here Ohio University and I will be graduating in May. Thinking about what comes after I graduate is something that I am trying to avoid as long as possible. Whenever I come across a Freshman I always become jealous and tell them that these next four years will be the best years of their lives. I am sure they are sick of hearing that from every senior they meet!
I'm a senior Communication Studies major Marketing and Advertising minor's. While at Ohio University I have been involved in College Against Cancer/Relay for Life OU for four years and National Communication Association Student Club (NCASC) for three years and I am currently serving on the exec board for the 2014-2015 year as club treasure. While at Ohio Univeristy I have met some of my best friends and together we have made some amazing memories. When that dreaded day in May comes around this year and I have to pack my bags and depart the lovely town of Athens there will be tears of sadness. After all its not four years its for life. Upon graduation I plan to move to Chicago, Illinois. I have many areas of interest human resources, public relations, event planning, marketing, and advertising. I would be more than happy to work in any of these fields in the Windy City! As scary as it is to leave the place I've called home for four years I am excited to see what my future has in store for me.
I am from the great city of Rocky River, in Cleveland Ohio, and I have lived there all of my life. I played soccer up until my senior year of school. Hockey is a huge part of my life, especially since my brother has played his whole life and also on the Ohio University Division Two team for a two years. I am slightly obsessed with my dog champ, my friends think I'm crazy, but he's too adorable. I am also a family girl; family is key. I would't be the person I am today without them.
