On Oct. 9, career services teamed up with JCPenny for “Colonels Suit-Up” event, which took place at the JCPenny in Houma from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The only people allowed into the store were Nicholls students, their parents and alumni. Those students who attended the event had access to 30 percent off on business attire. 

“Colonels Suit-Up event went so well that we are going to actually try and do it again in the spring for our students,” Director of the Office of Career Services, Kristie Tauzin Goulas, said.

On Nov. 11, career services is scheduled to bring a speaker to campus named Elle Overholt, the founder of Forth LLC. Overholt will hold a presentation titled “From Confused to Career Ready” in the Ridley Gros Auditorium inside Powell Hall.

On Nov. 12, career services is going to be putting together a mock interview event inside the Cotillion Ballroom.

“I think interviewing is something our students don’t get enough of, and they really need more practice with it,” Goulas said.

Career services helps sponsor an etiquette dinner with The Society for Human Resource Management group on campus. The event will take place on Nov. 13, inside the Cotillion Ballroom.

Career services offers help with résumés, cover letters and letters of intent for graduate school. They also provide career guidance to any student who enters their new office location in Ellender Library.

“I feel very positively about the programs and services that career services provides. My whole trajectory of what I was going to be doing with myself, after my undergrad, changed after I had a meeting with Mrs. Kristie Tauzin Goulas,” Ryland Wells, graduate student and career services employee, said. “She was able to put things into great perspective for me and really map out what I want to do with myself and the type of impacts I want to have on other people.” 

The Office of Career Services is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays for any student who needs their services.
