OP-TEC Newsletter – March 2017

Helping Your Graduates Find their Jobs


Most photonics students who will complete their education this year have begun looking for that Ideal Job; the ultimate reward for their diligent efforts as students. Some ways faculty are helping them in the job search are: 1) Identifying employers that are engaged in various photonics applications, 2) Locating employers who are hiring, and 3) Arranging interviews.

OP-TEC’s Photonics Alumni Council for Technicians has created a briefing document entitled How to Search and Find Your First Job. It contains advice from recent graduates that may be useful to your students. Please review this document at http://www.op-tec.org/pdf/Find_Your_First_Job.pdf. You may adapt or print copies to distribute to your students. If you prefer, you may request printed copies from the OP-TEC store and we will send them to you.

Idea #4 in this document discusses a resume and references a web site (http://career-advice.monster.com) which provides advice on preparation of resumes and cites some examples.
