S-CAR Career Intensives

Purpose
We want to help S-CAR students get the job they're looking for. So we are offering an intensive career training process that is specifically tailored to S-CAR students’ fields of interest. This career intensive process will help S-CAR students articulate how the conflict resolution field is applicable to various fields and careers, e.g. development, security, policy, etc. and prepare them for the resume, application, and interview process.

Registration
S-CAR students must register in advance for each all-day career intensives by emailing scarjob@gmu.edu. Intensives will be pre-scheduled, space intermittently throughout the school year. Each intensive will feature only one career track. Registration will be limited to around 15 students per intensive. This will allow for a more intimate interaction with our featured career professionals.

Activies
BEFORE the all-day career intensive, S-CAR students will receive a sample resume template that reflects the resume most frequently used by professionals and applicants in that career track. S-CAR students then draft or revise their own resume to mirror this template. S-CAR students will then work with S-CAR staff to ensure that the resumes are appropriately edited before the all-day career intensive begins.

During the all-day career intensive:

• Morning session, S-CAR students work with S-CAR staff in mock interviews, exercises and scenarios that will offer students an opportunity to articulate how their conflict resolution training is relevant to the field/career. Discussion of job search strategies will also occur.
• Afternoon session, 2-3 professionals from the specific field/career will share about their work, the opportunities for S-CAR students to engage in the field, how S-CAR students should market themselves to professionals in the field, etc. At the end of the afternoon session, S-CAR students will have an opportunity to engage in a Q&A with the professionals.
