UI Alumni Association and Placement Office to host Internet job search
seminar in Dubuque
DUBUQUE, IOWA -- The University of Iowa Alumni Association and
the UI Business and Liberal Arts Placement Office (BLAPO) are co-sponsoring
an educational outreach program about conducting a job search on the Internet
at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28 in 242 Science Hall of Loras College in
Laurie Dufoe, associate director of the BLAPO, will show job seekers
how to save time and money by locating job listings, researching companies
and networking on the World Wide Web. Program participants can also discover
useful web sites and learn how to conduct specific career searches.
"With people sometimes changing jobs every two to five years, the
career search is becoming more of a continual process. The UI is a great
resource to help people renew and refine their job-seeking skills,"
