This series is a collaboration between Title V and various student-serving departments at AU.
Did you know that AU has a department specifically tasked with providing resources for your success in and beyond your academic career?
The TCAS Department, headed by Dr. Claudia Dolinksy, is an excellent resource for many of your needs. From tutoring services to online tutorials about the proper use of APA to helping you land your first job out of college, the TCAS department provides a wealth of information for AU students.
Q: Where can I go to get help with my job search?
A: Dr. Dolinsky meets with students who need help with locating employment opportunities, crafting dynamic resumes, and learning how to interview well. Beyond the resources that already exist on the tutoring portal on Blackboard, students can set up appointments to talk through the job search process with Dr. Dolinsky personally.
Dr. Dolinksy is available in Room 195 from 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM. Students interested in setting up an appointment may call 305-593-1223, ext. 3135.
Student Success Bonus Tip: Networking is the name of the game when searching for jobs. A great way to connect and reconnect with those who might know about new opportunities is to sign up for LinkedIn. Once you’ve had your resume looked over by Dr. Dolinsky, upload it to your page. Many companies and organizations allow you to sync your LinkedIn page to pre-populate your job application!
Stay on the lookout for information regarding AU’s annual job fair, which will be happening this June!
