New Career Services director revamps the system
Career Services recently
hired a new director,
Julie Janik, and she is
ready to change the way
the department works.
"Philosophically, we are
changing directions," she said.
"The purpose of Career Services
is to aid students and graduates
in finding employment, and our
approach now is going to be
proactive instead of reactive and
"If you come to Career
Services, we can't find you a job,
we can't place you; what we can
do is provide leads," Janik said.
t;We have contacts - I brought my
contacts with me, and we have
great contacts through alumni.
But also one role of Career
Services is employee outreach.
That hasn't happened before, but
now it is. If you have an employer
that you're interested in, we're
happy to make the call for you."
"The big thing is that before
you can get a job, you as a
student have to do a lot of work
- you have to tailor your resume
for each and every job lead, you
have to be specific for each job.
Resumes are like snowflakes," she
said - they should never look the
same from job to job. "You only
have one shot to control how
employers view you."
At Career Services, "We're
going to analyze what your
goals are, what your skills are,"
said Janik, "You have to be very
targeted and strategic."
Janik brought two workshops
to campus last week, with Kim
Scott of Gemmy Industries on
Tuesday and Allison McFadden
of Moroch on Thursday, to help
students network and build their
resumes. "Students want to hear it
from people who can hire them,"
Janik said of the resume-building
Because the University of
Dallas is such a small campus,
said Janik, the best way to build a
relationship with employers in the
area is to get them emotionally
invested on campus, by seeing
the caliber of students that the
Janik now requires that
every senior who is graduating
have their resume on file with
the Career Services office. She
will also be teaching the Career
Development class in the future.
"I believe that the best way to
build relationships with employers
is to put you guys out there
working," she said. And Career
Services is going to do that, she
said, by making the approach
more targeted and being more
active in the student life cycle.

Attendees of Friday's installation ceremony of Beta Beta Beta (also known as BBB or TriBeta),
the biological honor society, pose for a photo. The University of Dallas chapter inducted 16
regular members, 13 associate members and five graduate members."Regular members meet
requirements of membership, including being a biology major, having taken specific courses in
biology and having met a minimum GPA requirement in their biology courses," said Dr. Marcy
Brown Marsden, biology chair."Associate members may not meet all of those requirements but
are still interested in membership."The graduate members are the biology faculty. For details
about Friday's installation, see page 3.
Many UD students are
aware of the "three
pillars of Lent":
prayer, fasting and
almsgiving. These are activities
that help individuals keep their
focus on Christ and others
during the Lenten season. Which
one of the pillars proves the
most meaningful or challenging
is surely something that differs
from person to person.
For college students it is
often the third pillar, almsgiving
that presents the most difficulty.
For those frugal students whose
dietary staples rarely vary
from Ramen noodles and the
occasional Hot Pocket, how much
donated money is "enough?"
It is tempting to think
of giving alms strictly in the
monetary sense, but luckily
there are other non-pecuniary
options that can either replace
or supplement ordinary cash
contributions; a great option is
to donate to the annual Prisoner
Outreach Program's clothing
Running from March 14
to April 27, the drive will be
accepting new or gently used
men's clothing of any size or
type. The drive is associated with
the Prisoner Entrepreneurship
program, which recruits eligible
prisoners from around the
Texas prison system, brings
them to a facility in Cleveland,
Texas, provides them with a
