Save a Life: Donating Blood

Donating blood can sound scary. A person sticking a needle into you to draw out a pint of blood. That’s just a generalization of what happens. You’ve heard the horror stories.

Well, not all horror stories are true. Donating blood is a simple and quick process (well, depending on how fast your blood comes out. Lol) it’s a process that can help save 3 lives! Right now there are many that need those pints because of the trade goes that have happened in our nation.

This board provides an overview of the pros of giving blood and why we do. While our blood drive is over, you can still go to a blood bank and donate. Patients around the nation are waiting for blood. You could be that person to help them.

So, if you want to donate or simply want to know more, head over to this board in the ELEVATOR BAY to learn more. 🙂

Go save a life!

Hire Me: The Right Clothes for the Job

IMG_6508[1]

The career fair is this week! (Where did time go?) A lot of employers and a few schools (graduate schools) will be there waiting to talk to you about yourself. Scary thought. But don’t show up in jeans, a t-shirt, and holey shoes. You need to look spiffy.

Don’t go all out and wear a tux (though, you will impress a lot of people). Wear nice dress pants – black, blue, gray, tan, etc., a nice skirt (not a mini skirt), a nice shirt with a blazer, or a dress (that’s not too short). If you need some ideas, check out this board. It will help you dress for success.

If you are lacking a clothing, stop by the Career and Professional Development center. Their Pioneer Career Closet is available to you if you need a nice shirt, some pants, or want a dress to wear. They have a lot that you have many options.

Make sure your resume is update to date too! The board has some helpful tips for updating your resume. Also, check out the Career and Professional Development center’s website at uwplatt.edu/cpdo.
