During the last week of classes, we caught up with VCU psychology junior Mariah who shares her #FailureFridays story about why re-taking a class is not only normal but can often times lead to betresults. Mariah also works for VCU Career Services, helping us with Employer and Experiential Development, which means she approves jobs offered to student's on #HandshakeatVCU! If your looking for a job after graduation, want resume help, or just have questions about your future career stop by VCU Career Services in the University Commons or visit our website at http://careers.vcu.edu/. #FailureFridays #VCU #VCUCareers #VCUPsychology #Finals

Networking is a great way to gain information and advice about your chosen career field, learn about potential opportunities, inform people about your interests and create opportunities. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics notes that 80% of jobs are now found through networking! The best jobs often go to people who network and sometimes, jobs are even created for those people. Search for local networking events in your area using sites such as @eventbrite, @meetup, @eventfullrva or searching your local Facebook events... and it helps to always carry a business card! - - #NationalCareerDevelopmentMonth
