About this Blog

Mark SmithWith the ever-changing tides of technology trends, skill-level standards, and employer preferences, the rules of the job search have changed. As Associate Vice Chancellor and Director of the Washington University Career Center and a parent, I constantly work at keeping up-to-date on “the latest.”

Between you and me, the journey towards landing that internship, post-graduate job, or graduate school acceptance letter, is one best approached early and openly. And we’re here every step of the way.
