At the Career Center, advisers often hear students share the number of positions they’ve applied to during their searches: 50, 100, 200, or even more! While this approach may seem like it would be effective, in reality, that’s not often the case.
Hi Dukies! It’s interview season for many of us as we scramble to secure a job or summer internship.
