Things You Can Do

▾ Start (or enhance) your LinkedIn profile

Start (or enhance) your LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn provides a wide variety of resources designed specifically for college students to guide you in this process.

▾ Build your Handshake account

Build your Handshake account. Once you have activated your account, you can look for summer or full-time work as well as register for Handshake alerts to notify you when jobs post in your areas of interest.

▾ Update your resume

Our office provides resources to get you started here. Once you have a base resume started, feel free to set-up an individual appointment with our office to have it reviewed.

▾ Become a student member of a professional association

Every profession has professional associations. Most allow student memberships for free – or almost free. Once a member, you will have access to current research and networks in your field. Having trouble figuring out what your professional organization is? Contact Career & Calling or talk to your academic advisor.

▾ Talk to people

In the world of career, we call this, “informational interviewing.” This is a fancy way to say, “ask people about the work they do, how they got into the line of work, what they like about it and what they do not.” Informational interviews are a great way to explore career options. They are also a great way to build your network.

▾ Join the Muse

The Muse is a great resources for career advice and job searching.

Mental and Emotional Health

If you are interested in connecting with a counselor, simply email counseling@asbury.edu to let us know your interest. We will respond to schedule a time that works with your schedule.

Spiritual Life

In this new reality of Spring Semester 2020, the Office of Spiritual Life is committed to connecting in ‘virtual ways’ and turning to Jesus through new means – like a Zoom call! Our campus leadership is excited to reconnect on March 30, and we’ve created daily opportunities to grow in Christ together. Community has always been an Asbury strength and we’ll thrive in virtual community together!

This Wednesday, March 25 at 10 a.m., we’re excited to kickoff Chapel Online and hear from Dr. Kevin J. Brown, with a word of encouragement.

For the next six weeks through the last week of classes, Chapel will post each Wednesday at 10 a.m. with a twelve to fifteen minute message bringing Scripture alive, forming us in the image of Jesus Christ, and encouraging us to live out of our Encounter with Him.

Starting Monday, March 30, we’ve designed one connection point for every day of the week. Please make note of these opportunities for ‘virtual spiritual vitality’ – including a weekly Chapel Message, Zoom Prayer Gathering, Ephesians Bible Study, and Coffee with the Chaplains. The Spiritual Life team is completely available to schedule one-on-one times as well – simply email Jeannie.Banter@asbury.edu or Greg.Haseloff@asbury.edu.

Have a prayer request? We would love to pray for you!
Email us at prayer@asbury.edu.
