The Liberty University Career Center is a valuable resource for career preparation. While they offer many services, including career assessment testing, counseling, résumé critique, and cover letter writing, The Washington Fellowship (TWF) remains a favorite.
TWF is a unique, semester-long internship program that allows Liberty students to gain professional experience while working in our nation’s capital. If your student is interested in this exciting opportunity, they should schedule an appointment with the Washington D.C. recruiter to begin preparation.
In the past, students have obtained internships with companies and organizations, including the U.S. Senate, Fox News, NCIS, Concerned Women for America, National Geographic, the Heritage Foundation, and more.
No matter your student’s major, TWF offers a rewarding opportunity to enhance their academic experience and gain a competitive edge in the job market. Encourage your student to stop by the Career Center today to learn more.
For more information, visit www.Liberty.edu/Careers or email Careers@liberty.edu. The Career Center is open Monday-Friday, 8-5 p.m. in DeMoss Hall, Room 1007. We will gladly assist your student in finding an internship in our nation’s capital.
We have some great news! Our office has moved to DeMoss Hall, Room 2247 and we are now fully accessible to parents and students. As your student approaches the end of the semester, keep in mind the following important deadlines:
• Registration and Financial Check-In (FCI) opened on Monday, April 1.
As your student is registering for Fall 2013, remember that Liberty offers certification and licensure in several technical trades. Enrichment courses recognized by the National Center for Construction Education and Research are obtainable in plumbing, electrical, welding, HVAC, carpentry, and masonry.
Students may take trade courses as electives while pursuing their current degree or they can take the trade courses as a cognate in an interdisciplinary degree. These areas of study will provide the students with employment opportunities as well as financial savings when they are able to make their own home improvements.
We currently have engineering, business, religion, family and consumer sciences, psychology, and graphic design majors in the various trade classes. I encourage you to discuss these options with your student. For more information, visit www.Liberty.edu/Trades.
|Give your student the ultimate gift – the chance to relive their Liberty University memories whenever they want to with their own copy of the 2012-13 Selah yearbook. They can experience Tim Tebow’s Convocation address, the amazing campus transformation, and other highlights from their time at Liberty. Preorder a copy for $25 before Sunday, May 12 for a chance to win an iPad Mini or a $100 Visa gift card.|
When Your College Student is Having Trouble
If your student is having trouble at college, you may be at a loss for what to say to help him.
Knowing what to say to your student will depend on who your student is, what your relationship with your student is, and why he is in this situation. You may be angry, disappointed, shocked, sad, or just plain overwhelmed. Being honest with your student may be the simplest and best start.
