Need RSSW Hours? Career Services Needs 10-15 Volunteers to Help Out With the “Amazing Career Race” April 18

The University Apartments in collaboration with Career Services will be hosting our first ever “Amazing Career Race”, on April 28 from 5-8pm. The program was inspired by the show “Amazing Race” which we twisted into a career-oriented event, and students will be able to understand the “Dos and Don’ts of Interviewing.”

The Amazing Career Race: Great Dane Edition will be a competition in which students will engage in interactive career stations in order to race to the finish line in pairs of two. The first team to successfully make it through the race will win the grand prize of a professional shopping spree! We are asking for volunteers to help us facilitate the program.

Would you be able to forward this to your students to see if any of them are able to assist us? We are looking for approximately 10-15 people who will be rewarded with service hours. We are also looking for pairs of 2 to compete if anyone is interested!

Students interested in volunteering at the Amazing Career Race must contact us at by Friday, April 18 by 4pm.
