Before your appointment

Planning a career, landing the job

See our DIY guide on Connecting College to Career. We cover how to become the best candidate to land your first job out of college.

Gather your information and have it available during your appointment. You don't need a full-blown resume - handwritten notes are fine, or even better, type them up! Try using the Career Profile tool in Oregon CIS.

Have with you:

  • Prior education: where you went, when you graduated.
  • Previous training and achievement: names and dates of any specialized certificates, credentials, or skills that you have developed. Write down any activities that highlight your achievements.
  • Any paid or unpaid work: who you worked for, where you volunteered, dates of employment, your accomplishments and responsibilities.
