In today’s economy and workplace, you can never prepare yourself too much for the road ahead. Luckily, there are an abundance of workshops, pro-tips, and useful advice available to those who seek it. If you’ve been coasting for the past four or five years and woke up today, realizing that you’ve never even put together a résumé, you’ve come to the right place. Over the next several weeks, Maroon Weekly will be featuring a Senior Scramble column. We’re going to cover everything from university-available workshops to interviews with local business-owners who are willing to offer their input for the potential success of your future career.

Looking ahead, we’ll cover the debate of experience over education, study abroads, internships, professional development workshops, the benefits of a typing class, and how to make yourself more versatile as an employee – and therefore more employable.

Do you have something to add to the conversation? You can hit us up on twitter (@maroonweekly) using the hashtag #MWseniorscramble for your chance to be featured in the paper.
