Students and their parent can stop by the free photo both during dinner on the first day of orientation. Photos can be viewed and downloaded the next day from the Student Affairs Flickr account. Its a special moment for students and their parents but its even more fun to watch them “pose” for the camera.
We asked current UofL students what they wish their parents knew more about before they started here at UofL and what they wish their parents talked to them about now. Check it out before Orientation! Thanks to all of our student volunteers!
Graduation is here and UofL students are already deep in the job hunt. UofL News spoke with Trey Lewis, director of UofL’s Career Development Center, about ways graduates can better position themselves to land their first job.
UofL News:What are some of the key issues facing graduating students in 2016?
Trey Lewis: There are three things:
Perception of the lack of direct experience (particularly for grads without internship experience)
For most entry-level positions that prefer 1 to 2 years of experience, many new graduates will experience competition from other recent graduates from the classes of 2014 and 2015
However, prospects in Louisville remain fairly hopeful as there is a shortage of bachelor degree holders in our local marketplace. In Louisville, the percentage hovers around 30 percent of working adults with bachelor’s degrees. If you have a degree, there’s definitely an advantage to be had. The key is to have the degree and some level of experience.
