SGS Habitat Featured Articles: SGPS Career Event

“I’ve spent plenty of time compiling my digital portfolio with CVs and references,” says Nicole, MSc student in Health Science, “but it is a photo that will be the first thing my potential boss will see when they download my profile, right? That is why I am here.”

I met Nicole in a line for free professional headshots, which had been organized by the Society of Graduate and Professional Students (SGPS) in their SGPS Professional Makeover Week. This October SGPS offered three special events to help students prepare for conferences, networking events, and job interviews. In addition to headshot session, students could take part in special women’s and men’s tailoring events to find out how to look sharp and professional. For that purpose, SGPS invited business partners Chris James Kingston and Eph Apparel to provide one-on-one services with rack professional items.

“Working at Dartmouth exposes me to the many advantages of an Ivy League institution, including its renowned network of scholars and experts in the field of international relations. The award also affords me the financial latitude to focus on my dissertation rather than other commitments.”
