Black History Month Begins on Thursday, February 1, 2024

We are excited to share all that is happening at Post as we celebrate Black History Month!  Established the second week of February in 1926 by the Association for the Study of African American Life and History founder Dr. Carter G. Woodson, Negro History Week explored the “themes of how people of African descent in the United States have viewed themselves, the influence of social movements on racial ideologies, and the aspirations of the black community.”  The first official observance of Black History Month came in February 1976.  We hope you’ll join us!

Career Development Tip: What Should You Include in your Elevator Pitch?

Your elevator pitch should be a short and sweet synopsis about who you are for a prospective employer.  When developing your elevator pitch, focus on the skills and experiences that make you uniquely appealing to prospective employers.  Share what makes you an awesome candidate, including:

  • Your field of study
  • A few relevant skills
  • A brief overview of your relevant experience

The team at the Center for Career and Professional Development wants to work with you on developing your elevator pitch, which is an invaluable tool when it comes to pursuing jobs and internships.  Visit them in North 103 or contact them at [email protected] for an appointment.

Student Spotlight: Lisa-Marie Ortega

Two decades ago, she stood a few credits from graduating college. Then a series of family tragedies took her away from school and pushed her out into the working world. Growing tired of missing opportunities because she lacked a degree, Lisa-Marie Ortega is now fighting back – with the determination of a prideful mother, and with our support.
