Organization is truly key
Being sure you have all your
ducks in a row is vital
CAROLYN SCANDURA
FEATURES EDITOR
One of the most important
skills anyone can master is the fine
art of organization. There is no
right or wrong way to organize but
there are wrong ways to manage
your time when it is running out.
Being less than two weeks from the
December graduation ceremony
seems that it would qualify as a
period in some people's lives when
time is running out. Not enough
time to prepare for final exams, not
enough time to go to The Career
Center for that mock interview you
have been planning on doing all
semester and definitely not enough
time to spend time with the people
who got you through college day
to day, your friends.
Having someone else tell you
that your time Is running out and
you need to buckle down is the
last thing that a December gradu-
ate needs, what you really need
are a few fresh ideas to help you
get through the next few weeks
with grace.
First and foremost, you need to
be sure that everything is in place
for you to graduate on December
17, with the rest of your depart-
ment. Contact the graduation
office, just to be safe, and be sure
that you have completed all of the
required paper work, you know
what time you need to be at the
ceremony and there are no- last
minute fees or unpaid parking tick-
ets that need to be taken care of.
Aside from the routine admin-
istrative items that must be taken
care of, worrying about exams,
papers and final group presenta-
tions can be hectic and if some
sort of organization is not in place,
Important things can be missed.
Try either making a to-do list,
writing out sticky notes or using a
month-overview planner. That will
allow you to see when things are
due, how long you have to do them
and what other events must occur
in that time period. Many people
find It useful to plan events in
order of pleasure. Not many people
find pleasure in writing their 15-
page history paper, but may find
pleasure in holiday shopping. Put
all of your tasks in order of what
must be done and what you truly
do not want to do. If you start with

Look to the Career
Center for help
This student resource can
be invaluable for students
CAROLYN SCANDURA
FEATURES EDITOR
Finding a good ob is one of
the most common worries of any
student who is soon to graduate.
There are so many paths to take,
so many.companies to choose from
and so much preparation that must
be done. More so, what about the
problem of employers only want-
ing to hire people with experience
but no one can get experience
without being hired? Fortunately,
ECU has a The Career Center to
help students down the long hard
road of ob hunting.
If you have not already made
contact with The Career Center,
it Is never too late. The center
describes their primary focus as
providing assistance and guidance
to students and alumni in their
career quest. One little known fact
about The Career Center is that
they are available to help students
at any point in their college career,
whether they are freshman, soon
to graduate seniors or alumni. This
resource, which is a department
within the division of Academic
Affairs, helps students to fine
tune their job-hunting skills and
increase their confidence in high-
stress interview situations.
The Career Center uses a
system they call e3, a combination
of student exploration, experience
and engagement in community
resources. As described on their
Web site, "Exploration is the foun-
dation, Experience Is the practical
application and Engagement is
the point where you take control
of your destiny Community
resources range from members of
the university, employers, agencies
and other external populations
such as other university popula-
tions. Through their well-con-
nected network, The Career Center
can keep many employers as their
partners, which can help students
to initiate opportunities in public,
private, governmental and corpo-
rate sectors of work.
In a society like today's every-
one is looking for instant grati-
fication. So what can The Career
Center do for you, right now? They
provide workshops, programs and
opportunities for students that will
help Improve and encourage career
exploration, practical work experi-
ence and professional develop-
ment. All of these capabilities are

possible through their extensive
experience with employers all over
the country as well as the technol-
ogy they utilize to communicate
with these employers.
One of the most valuable tools
that The Career Center has to offer
students is the mock-interview.
This process allows students to
go to the office, dressed in profes-
sional attire and sit with a trained
professional and go though the
typical interview for their chosen
career. There are many career spe-
cialists on their staff, one of whom
will be able to guide students
through resume writing, what
kind of answers are appropriate for
typical questions and what type of
questions the student should ask
an Interviewer.
"After visiting The Career
Center, I have felt better prepared
in interview situations, more con-
fident about my resume and very
connected with the work world
said senior Industrial Technology
major Nicholas Walters.
"I am graduating on the
December 17 and the help I
received at The Career Center has
been Invaluable
With graduation approaching
quickly, this is a very busy time
of year for The Career Center so
appointments are necessary. Be
sure to be prepared with questions,
goals and any companies that you
would like to be put in touch with.
The Career Center is a great tool for
students to utilize whether they
are graduating this month, next
semester or in the next few years.

that Item, use some energy on concentrating
and just getting it done, all of your other
tasks will seem much less stressful.
No matter how much you have to do, one
of the most important parts of stress and time
management is saving some time for your-
self. Whether it be taking the time to watch
NipTuck or going
to the gym, these
little breaks from all
of your responsibili-
ties can really help
relieve stress. If you
are really in a time
crunch, try com-
bining those plea-
sure activities with
another required
task. Watch your
favorite television
show and wrap holi-
day gifts or go to
the gym and study
while you are on
the exercise bike. The old saying, "kill two
birds with one stone" definitely applies here.
If you feel like everything is getting
out of hand and you are going to have a
nervous break down, be sure to stop what
you are doing, take a break and breathe.
There are many relaxation-breathing
techniques that really can help calm your
nerves. Try looking on the Internet for some
tips and trick on how to relax. Stress can
drastically decrease your productivity and
so can sleep deprivation.
One of the most popular comments
heard out of any student's mouth is, "I'm
just so tired College students often do not
get enough sleep and it can affect all of their
everyday tasks. When planning your day,
be sure you plan enough time in there for
sleep. If you don't you will end
up dragging your feet all day
and getting less done that you
needed to. Taking those extra
two hours to sleep will not
only make you feel better, but
will also increase how much
you get done. If you are having
trouble getting to sleep, again
use the Internet as a resource.
There are many Web sites that
can help you find new ways to
g. calm your mind so that you
I can sleep.
t Everyone has so many
things to do at this time of
year, getting it all done seems
impossible. Searching for jobs, perfecting
your resume, going to work, studying for
exams and still managing to perform the
human tasks of eating and sleeping can seem
Impossible, but taking a few minutes each day
to plan your time and prioritize your tasks
can be a great tool not only in the upcoming
weeks; but for the rest of your life.
