This spring, Career Services will hold an informational meeting on Monday, September 24 at 5 p.m. in the Chesebro Room, Dewar Union to describe the MetroLink program and to answer any questions students may have.
Applications: Students should pick up a MetroLink Application and Recommendation Form in the Office of Career Services, located on the first floor of Golisano Hall or download the forms here. In addition to requesting student information, the application asks that students indicate the career fields they are interested in exploring on MetroLink and asks for one faculty recommendations.
Forms for MetroLink 2013:
Resume and Statement: A resume should accompany the application. Career Services can provide information on how to write a resume. In addition to a resume, students should attach a one-page description of what you hope to learn, gain, and/or accomplish as a result of MetroLink. Career Services also wants to know how each student can contribute to the program. For assistance with preparing your resume, check out https://hartwick-csm.symplicity.com/students/.
Interview: Once your application is received, you will be sign up for an interview in the fall with the MetroLink staff. The purpose of the interview is to discuss your motivations for participating in MetroLink, to find out more about your specific career interests and to ensure that you will represent the College in an appropriate matter.
Selection: The MetroLink Committee wants to give as many students the opportunity to participate in MetroLink as possible. For this reason, the Committee gives preference to students who have not participated in the program in the past (sorry all you past MetroLinkers). The Committee is looking for students who are mature, flexible, and willing to make the most out of the trip. If you are accepted into the program, you will be notified by the end of October.
Once accepted: In the fall, the alumni committees in each city will review your application and begin the process of matching your career interests with a professional. You will be given details about the schedule for a preparation seminar in November. During the seminar, you will learn about ways to maximize your connections, and networking experiences. The prep-seminar will also cover what to pack and answer any other questions you may have.
