December 2020: A Letter from the Job Lady

Updated: Mar 19



Hello, Cleveland State University community—

Well, you’ve done it again! Another semester is in the books. I know you have pulled out all the stops to manage through a one of a kind experience this fall. Kudos to you! I hope you eat something delicious or listen to your favorite song at top decibels (maybe doing a little car dancing!) to celebrate.

If you follow us on social media: CSU_Careers on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (and if not, why not??) you will see our campaign for a successful winter break. It’s the perfect time to catch up on sleep, take a brisk walk for fresh air, or curl up with a good book (see some of what we’re reading below). And, it’s a solid time to network as we reunite with friends, family, and others in our circles, even during a pandemic (e.g. with masks and at proper distances). Yes – you too! Not just our students … Stay connected to one another. Don’t forget!

Here’s hoping that soon enough you can catch some well-earned rest and restoration as we take a break at the end of the calendar year.

Cheers and healthy wishes to you and yours in 2021,

The Job Lady at CSU
