Graduate Student Seminar – 2018
The Maryland School Counselor Association would like to thank all of our presenters and the graduate student attendees who made the 2018 Graduate Student Seminar a huge success. This even was sold out and over 60 students attended! We would also like to thank Howard County Community College for hosting the event.
This year's even was held on January 27th, and focused on the job application and hiring process. The morning started off with breakfast and networking among graduate students across different programs. Recent graduate and MSCA Board Member, Xiomara Medina, began our program by giving practical advice on how to prepare for the daunting job application process. Eunice Humphrey followed by delivering an engaging presentation on best practices when interviewing for school counseling jobs.
Later in the morning, we heard from a panel of Maryland school counseling supervisors and coordinators on ways to stand out as an applicant. We had representatives from the following school systems:
- Howard County Public Schools
- Montgomery Public Schools
- Anne Arundel Public Schools
- Prince George's Public Schools
- Baltimore County Public Schools
We would like to thank all of these representatives for coming out to support our graduate students!
