My Experience with CyHire
This past summer, I was thinking about how I wanted to work while I was in school. I didn’t know where to begin my job search process! I remembered when I took LAS 203, we learned about CyHire and how to conduct a job search and navigate the site.
I didn’t know exactly what job I wanted, but I knew I wanted to work on campus– that was a start! I was able to filter out my preferences and CyHire presented me with job postings that were interested in my major, my preferences, and more.
Soon, I found a job posting from the LAS Career Services and I was intrigued! CyHire made it very easy for me to submit my application. I already had my updated resume uploaded to my profile and I was able to attach that to my application. A couple of days later I received an email. The LAS Career Services wanted to schedule an interview with me!
CyHire is very helpful when it comes to job seeking. It also has great information on career fairs, on-campus interviews, informational sessions and makes it easy for you to schedule appointments. There are so many features to explore!
