New Career Liaison for Education


 

Bonnie Rae Fisher started as the new career liaison for education in July 2016.

  • I can help students find the right fit— If a student is uncertain about teaching as a career, I can help students determine the right career for their interests, career goals, skills, values, and personality. Additionally, for students who need assistance in their job search and finding the right fit as they transition out of the university, I can provide resources regarding job outlook, salary, and employment trend information. 
  • Our career fair attracts many recruiters to one event—Our annual Teacher Recruitment Day provides an excellent opportunity for students to meet representatives from a wide variety of schools and organizations, and establish a network of contacts. I will help students research the employers beforehand and provide tips so they are prepared to effectively engage recruiters. 
  • I can help students master the job interview—There is no better way to prepare for the job interview than by experiencing an "actual" interview. At CAP, we have a variety of resources to develop interviewing skills. Recruiter volunteers conduct mock interviews with your students on-campus and provide a constructive critique of their performance and effective interview strategies. We also have an online tool, InterviewStream, where students conduct mock interviews online and can email responses for critique.

These are just some of the services I offer as your Career Liaison. Please do not hesitate to contact me at fisherbr@jmu.edu to determine how, together, we can achieve success. I look forward to working with you!
