CAREER ORIENTATION PRESENTATION In our latest presentation we had Mr. Don Snyder talk to us about getting experience relevant to our field. We were given a Backpacks to Briefcases book which has many times on getting internships, improving our resumes, preparing for a job interview and getting the job. One resource that he told us about is the UNLV Career Link which is a job search engine similar to Monster.com. The difference between Monster.com and UNLV Career Link is that at the UNLV site the companies are looking for UNLV students and alumni. Another resource we were told about is the UNLV Recruiting Center located in the Student Services Building on campus. The building is located on the third floor.
