Dear BIS Students:

Career Services is advertising a few new courses this Fall...

*The Office of Military Services sponsors a 1 credit Veteran Transition 
class for veterans each semester.*  The course is designed to help 
student veterans transition to a school environment and build skills in 
the following areas:

  * Resume writing
  * Interviewing
  * Job search
  * Networking

This course meets once per week and will help satisfy upper division 
credit requirements (300/400) and textbooks are free for veterans.  The 
course number for the next course (fall 2011) is 79511.  For more 
information call the Office of Military Services at 703.993.2428 or 
email us at [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]>. ***For students 
using the Post 9/11 GI Bill and enrolled in only 6 credits (half-time), 
this course will make you eligible for 60% of BAH. 

*University 400 is a 1 credit course for second semester juniors and 
seniors.* The course combines the use of self-assessment, job search 
strategies and research into the development of an effective job search 
plan. The academic emphasis is on resume/portfolio development, 
networking and interviewing strategies, professional ethics, 
presentation skills and long term career planning.

*University 400 is a 1 credit course for second semester juniors and 
seniors.* The academic emphasis is on student readiness for the
