Radiology major Dana Portillo credits the Career Development Department at Del Mar College for helping her plan for life after graduation.
“The student resources here at Del Mar have really helped me move along my future career,” Portillo said of the job listings, resume building and interview skills help she’s received.
The Career Development Department on Oct. 31 held an Open House in the Career Kiosk in the Harvin Center to make even more students aware of those resources.
The Open House aimed to offer students help with any resources pushing them forward to find a job. One of the most used resources is Hire Viking.
“Hire Viking is a great opportunity for students to gain employment in on and off campus positions,” said Career Specialist Cecilia Gamboa.
Another piece off career software available to students is called Choices.
“Choices provides students career research, occupational outlook, and a pathway to academics,” Gamboa said.
All these resources and more are available in the Career Kiosk inside the Harvin Center.
For liberal arts major Javier Martinez, time management and student tutoring have been most important to him.
“The Student Success Center has helped me by preparing for class, success and my future,” Martinez said.
The Open House was geared toward assisting students in finding a career and positions in their chosen career field. Among those checking out the Hire Viking portal was Javier Martinez.
“I wanted to be educated on the job process,” he said.
Liberal arts major Sadie Lopez found the event helpful.
“It gave me insight to my future,” Lopez said.
