LionShARE

LionSHARE is a full service on-line recruiting system encompassing job and

internship postings, on-campus recruiting opportunities, and events such as

employer information sessions and career fairs. The system is for the exclusive

use of Columbia students and alumni.

how to Get Started—Go to the LionSHARE login page (www.careereducation.columbia.edu/findajob)

and use your UNI and password to sign in.

Alumni, if you do not know your UNI, please visit the Alumni Affairs website

(http://alumni.columbia.edu/access/s2_2.html).

On-Campus Recruiting (OCR)

The On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) program provides employers with the opportunity

to host information sessions and conduct interviews on campus.

It provides students with direct access to some of the most competitive companies

and opportunities in the job market today.

It is important to keep in mind that OCR is only one tool students may utilize

when embarking on their career search. Some students make the mistake

of assuming OCR is the only way to find a job or internship and focus only on

this program. While OCR is fairly straightforward and process driven, it requires

attention to strict deadlines and often demanding interview schedules.

Before electing to incorporate the OCR program into their job search, students

should do their research to make sure they are serious about the jobs

and companies to which they apply.

All on-campus interview opportunities are posted in LionSHARE. In order to

participate in On-Campus Recruiting, students must first acquire OCR access.

To gain On-Campus Recruiting Access and successfully participate, please

complete the following: (Video Tutorial: http://screenr.com/BUSs)

a. Review and agree to the OCR Access policies and allow 24 – 48 business

hours for access to these opportunities.

b. Login to LionSHARE and update your personal profile.

c. Through the “On-Campus Interviews” tab, you can find opportunities that

match your qualifications as indicated in your profile.

Job Postings

Employers post job opportunities with the Center for Career Education

through the LionSHARE system for full-time and part-time positions as well as

internships, fellowships and casual on-campus jobs. These are posted year

round and should be checked regularly. For tips on how to search for job

postings please watch our quick online tutorial.

search.

Masters Core Workshop I (9/14) will help students learn to identify jobs

and careers of interest, set reasonable job-search goals, and engage in

productive industry research. This workshop will also discuss the most relevant

sites and resources for locating job postings and opportunities in any

industry.

Core Workshop II (9/21) focuses on the materials masters students will need

to apply for jobs, with special focus on how to write effective Resumes and

Cover Letters. This workshop also delves into essential Networking skills as

a vital part of the job-search process.

Core Workshop III (9/28) is aimed at helping students develop effective Interview

skills. We will also discuss appropriate Business Etiquette, and the dos

and donts of job-offer Negotiations.

at Masters students in the arts and sciences, including GSAS, GSAPP, SOA,

Thursday, October 27, 2011, 12:00 – 1:00 pm (ET)

Adam Nguyen and Jonathan Malveaux, Ivy Link, www.myivylink.com

You worked hard to get into the top law schools; you worked even harder for

three years mastering legal concepts like in personam versus in rem jurisdiction

and the rule against perpetuities. You may have landed a prestigious

clerkship, a high-paying corporate law job or a rewarding public interest

position. But now you are wondering, “What’s next?” This webinar aims to

jumpstart the process for attorneys who wish to change careers by exploring

issues such as self-assessment, career-changing challenges, networking,

goal-setting and leveraging your assets. The presenters, attorneys who have

successfully leveraged their backgrounds as attorneys into non-legal careers,

will share their experiences with making the transition.

Self at Work

Wednesday, December 14, 2011, 6:00 – 7:00 pm (ET)

Haig Chahinian, training and development consultant, blogger

at www.workplacenudity.com

Are you doing a disservice to yourself—and to the organization where you

work—by leveraging only parts of who you are? Perhaps you hide invisible

attributes like a learning disability, or ignore visible identities such as your

gender. Fact is, the freer you are to reveal and engage the full scope of your

humanity, the happier and more productive you will be. Yet what exactly does

it mean to bring your whole self to work? And what are the hurdles? Find out

in this webinar, along with the “whys” and “how-tos” of this critical mindset.
