From noon-4 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 14, the MonsterTRAK Street Team will be located on the Murphy Center seal (outside Murphy Center on Viterbo Court/Ninth Street) with their 20'x30' unit. When the MonsterTRAK Street Team sets up on campus, students can:

- Learn about MonsterTRAK as a resource for finding internships and jobs.
- Find out more about the Career Center.

With unique password-protection, MonsterTRAK's database can be accessed only by students and alumni of Viterbo. This security allows employers to target their recruitment efforts to Viterbo, assuring them a highly qualified and extremely motivated pool of candidates. This service is provided at no charge to students and alumni.
In addition to the job listing and resume database, other features of Viterbo's MonsterTRAK system include message boards, where students can post questions to employers; and the JobSearch Guide, which includes tips on everything from how to write a resume to how to negotiate a salary. The CPP office at Viterbo, MC 312, offers a range of services, resources, and programs to educate students and alumni in all aspects of the career development process for the purpose of enhancing their professional preparation and employability.
Human Services Career Fair
Those needing help in finding jobs in Human Services are welcome to stop by the Human Services Career Fair on Thursday, Nov. 14, from noon-4 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Lobby at Viterbo University.
This year there will be 43 representatives from 28 organizations recruiting students in human service fields.
