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!
Mary LaMont (M.A. Word and Worship concentration '92)
Basic approach to job search
There is one job for you
You can only have one job at a time
99 rejections are meaningless when you locate your one job
Finding a job is work
Must be approached with the same discipline as other work (papers, study)
Must expect to be discouraged but not to stop
Create a system
So many calls a day
So many letters a day
Approach the job search “out of the box”
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.

“It is hopeless for the occasional visitor to try to keep up with Chicago – she outgrows his prophecies faster than he can make them. She is always a novelty, for she is never the Chicago you saw when you passed through the last time.”
-Mark Twain, Life on the Mississippi
