RTS workshops would not be possible without the help of volunteers and supporters like you. At the “Search Strategy 101” workshop on March 16, RTS Scholars received guidance on how to supercharge their search strategy in preparation for the competitive upcoming summer months.

The RTS advising team discussed the importance of identifying what to look for before the job search, creating a job tracking spreadsheet, and networking with professionals in the Scholars’ desired industry. Then, RTS volunteer Molly Kemper answered questions from Scholars and shared her insights as an experienced recruiter. Molly expressed the importance of not “filtering yourself out” and “taking a chance” on a job opportunity even if the Scholar may not meet all of the qualifications listed.

Not only did Molly answer questions and offer amazing advice, she also went the extra mile by inviting Scholars to connect with her on Linkedin. Thanks to you, Scholars left the workshop ready to conquer their job search and build important connections.
