Scholar Events

groupBethany Cooper, Corporate Recruitment and Talent Management Coordinator at FNC, Inc., met with several of the OMWC scholars for an informational Lunch and Learn session.  Students were able to hear firsthand from a recruiter, what can set themselves apart from the competition, when applying for jobs and internships. Bethany illustrated the perfect resume, discussed interview skills and how to prepare for interview questions, and also focused on the importance of effective networking. The main take away from her time with our OMWC scholars, was “to treat a job search, like a full time job!” Proper research, practice, and preparation can make all the difference.

The OMWC scholars welcomed University Police Department’s new Chief, Tim Potts, who came to Ole Miss from Purdue University as the Red Plate Supper speaker for October. Chief Potts noted that he sees his position as one to serve the students, and he prides himself on being available to them constantly. The scholars will wrap-up the fall semester with a holiday gathering at the Memory House in December.
