All-School Penitential Service

What does the Lord Require of Us?

This year Earth Day falls on Good Friday. During our Penitential Service, we will examine our consciences about how we may have contributed to the suffering of God’s Creation. We will reflect upon our answer today to Jesus’ question, “Who is your neighbor?” We have an opportunity to repent of our environmental sins, ones we have been considering during the course of reading our weekly Lent 4.5 pamphlets. We will praise God’s abundant mercy.

Dress Appropriately
Before the interview, select your outfit. Depending on the industry and position, get out your best suit and check it over for spots and wrinkles. Even if the company has a casual environment, you don't want to look like you slept in your clothes. Above all, dress for confidence.
Be on Time

The Student Representative Council welcomes the CTU community to come together to share our cultures through cuisine, song, and story.  Bring a favorite traditional dish to share the flavor of your heritage (about enough for 10 - 20 servings would be great.)  Tell us a story or sing a beloved song - bless our ears with the sounds of your home place. Contributions are welcomed and encouraged!

Basic approach to job search 

  1. There is one job for you
  2. You can only have one job at a time
  3. 99 rejections are meaningless when you locate your one job

Finding a job is work

  1. Must be approached with the same discipline as other work (papers, study)
  2. Must expect to be discouraged but not to stop
  3. Create a system
    • So many calls a day
    • So many letters a day

Approach the job search “out of the box”

Self-describing Adjectives

Action Verbs

The critical tools for any effective job search are the cover letter and the résumé. Here you will find tools to help you in the creation of your own résumé and cover letters.
