#Selfies on UF's Career Resource Center Open House agenda

The Career Resource Center is ready to help students with their resumes, outfits and even their selfies.

For the first time, the center’s annual Open House, to be held Monday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the CRC, will feature a booth for Pre-Showcase Selfies.

Dana McPherson, assistant director of marketing and communications for the center, said the center is hoping students will post the photos on their social media profiles with the hashtag “#IamShowcase.”

The goal of the event, McPherson said, is to prepare students for Career Showcase, which will take place Jan. 21 and 22.

She said she expects about 200 students to attend the open house, which will include workshops on Gator CareerLink and resume building and a series on professional dress hosted by Dillard’s.

“We’re using this open house as a tool,” she said. “The workshops we’re offering this year kick off next week and all of our professional development events.”

With Career Showcase a week after the open house, Bruna Bouhid, a 22-year-old international studies senior and marketing intern for the center, said the event may help students get organized before the big day.

“As students, we procrastinate,” she said. “We do need to spend some time beforehand preparing.”

Bouhid said she expects the most popular event to be on resume building.

“There are so many things that are said about resumes,” she said. “It will be really helpful to have an extra set of eyes to look at it.”
