University Career Services Debuts New Radio Show, “At the Career Lounge” Featuring Latest Career News and Interviews with Corporate Recruiters, Thursdays Noon to 2:00 on WBTY

University Career Services is shaking up the air waves with a new weekly radio program – “At the Career Lounge” – dedicated to giving students the inside scoop on their job search and potential opportunities. Hosted by Alyssa Hammond and Colleen Murphy, associate directors of undergraduate career services, the show airs Thursdays from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. on WBTY Radio Bentley. The program features the latest on career news as well as interviews with experts, employers, and students.

A range of topics helps keep listeners tuned in. The show opens with a look at the current job market , featuring information on career-oriented campus events to worldwide trends, and then transitions to a profile of a professional organization worth considering while job hunting and career building.

One of the biggest draws of the program is the employer interview  where students learn more about the featured company’s recruiting process and what they’re looking for from job candidates. The guest roster includes representatives from companies such as Travelers, KPMG, Liberty Mutual, and Vistaprint.

Hammond and Murphy also provide tips to guide students at various stages of their job search as they build their personal “brand.” The hosts give students a voice during the call-in segment and quiz that closes  the show.

“The great thing about this show,” says Hammond, “is that students are gaining a broad range of knowledge. Whether it’s breaking job news from the media or first-hand tips from prospective employers, it helps studentsin areas that can range from setting personal career goals to which questions to ask during a job interview.”

The Bentley community can tune in to “At the Career Lounge” each Thursday at noon. During the live call-in segment, Hammond and Murphy can be reached at 781-891-3488.
