Tools for Tigers event will help Auburn alumni with job search

AUBURN – Tools for Tigers, an event designed to help young alumni with all aspects of their job search, will take place Dec. 13 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Auburn University Alumni Center. It is hosted by the Auburn University Career Center and the Office of Alumni Affairs.

The event will inform job-seekers about personal branding, networking, job searching, interviewing, business etiquette and resume and cover letter writing. Participants will also have the opportunity to take personality and strengths assessments to enhance their self-awareness and ability to communicate skills and abilities in a resume, cover letter or interview.

“Tools for Tigers is an opportunity for young alumni, from 2007 to the present, to enhance their job search strategies, learn about personal branding and networking and be encouraged to learn how their personality and strengths can contribute to a future employer and more importantly, how to articulate those through a resume or interview,” said Katie Mantooth, career counselor at the Auburn University Career Center.

Registration is $50 and includes two assessments, an etiquette lunch and the opportunity to hear various trained professionals lecture on the different aspects of getting a job.

“I recommend this program for any recent graduate who is job seeking or wants to grow in his or her self-awareness and job search skills for the future,” Mantooth said.
