We have what now?

So I was doing some digging through search engines to find something interesting in DePaul news, and I came across the Career Center’s YouTube channel. There are only three videos up, the most recent of which is from two months ago. This was slightly disappointing to me because I figured the university had taken more initiative in branching out into web multimedia.

But I guess what was more disappointing was that it took me about 20 minutes of browsing through other material before I came across the page. If I didn’t go through several pages of search results to find it, I never would have known it was there. And there’s some useful content on there so far!

I feel as though the school needs to find a way of letting students know what new tools are made available to us, especially when those tools are free and easily accessible. Maybe we could get a monthly newsletter? Has anyone else had a similar sentiment, or do I need to stop whining?

Anyway, I found this video on the Career Center’s page titled Interview Preparation Tips. I think it’s actually an excellent condensed how-to guide if you’ve got an interview coming up (or to keep in mind for the next time you do). Check it out below:


  1. I completely agree with your take on the DePaul search engine. It isn't very easy to find updated features. (The "events" calendar dates back to the year 2000 and doesn't have any events posted since early autumn quarter)
    These posts are essential to DePaul students, so I thank you. Our professional development is at our fingertips via the Career Center. I think it's one of DePaul's best resources, so I like to see it's promotion.
    You might like to push the opening of the new loop office for the Career Center. It's not really very busy and very spacious.

  2. Thanks for the tip, Molly! And I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels like we're in need of an overhaul on the school's page.
