Education on Job Search Techniques
Company/Industry Research, Trends, and Job Market/Labor Statistics
A job seeker's best weapon is information. The more information a seeker has, the less chance of making a bad choice in jobs. The Blair House staff assists with company and industry research resources, how to understand the labor market, and how several economic, political and cultural issues all influence one another.
Graduate School Information and Application Assistance
The Blair House maintains information needed (programs, costs, scholarships) on Graduate Schools both electronically and in print. We also have GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT and other graduate school admission test information.

Networking is the #1 way to find a job. They say it's all who you know, but more importantly it is who knows you! We teach students and alumni how to begin developing a professional network, how to maintain one, and the values and benefits of reciprocity in job searching.
