Entering the Jungle” and other Career Skills Events
Career Services is proud to announce the piloting of a new program specifically targeted to graduating seniors about to join the work force. This program is entitled, “Entering the Jungle: Career Survival Skills for Life after Trinity” and will occur on Thursday, May 14.
The program lasts from 8:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. and contains panels and breakout sessions on topics such as: Marketing your Trinity Experience; Negotiating Your First Salary; Networking Etiquette; Professional Dining Etiquette and Managing Your Personal Finances. This is open to all graduating seniors but space is limited to 50 participants.
From 2 – 3 p.m., there will be a Networking Reception that follows the discussion and will feature representatives from companies that are actively seeking entry-level employees. It will be a perfect time for graduating seniors to make connections for possible employment. This event is open to all job seeking graduates.
Please encourage your student to sign-up to attend this end of the year program as soon as possible. The event registration is located on TigerJobs, which is accessible by all students.
For those who are parents of students who are not seniors, please encourage your student to be on the lookout for programs that cover these topics that are offered all throughout the academic year. In addition, they may meet with their career advisor to discuss one-on-one.
Please contact Career Services at 210-999-8321 if you have any questions.

Student Health 101 - May Edition
Submitting Proof of Health Insurance Required by the University
In July, when electronic bills are sent to students, there will be a charge of $1386 for the 12 month premium for the student health insurance plan. This charge will serve as a reminder to go to the Academic HealthPlans website to either submit a waiver or enroll in the plan. A link to the waiver site will accompany the bill. If the student completes the waiver the charge will be removed from the student's bill.
The waiver/enrollment will be available at the beginning of July at https://trinity.myahpcare.com/waiver. The deadline for submitting a waiver and having the charge removed from the University bill is September 2, 2015.
Questions about the waiver/enrollment can be directed to Health Services, 210-999-8111.
Questions about your bill may be directed to Student Financial Services, 210-999-8898.
Easing Your Graduating Senior’s Transition FROM College
Just as the transition from high school to college was a mixture of excitement and anxiety for your son or daughter, so too is the transition from college to what is next . . . which may be unclear! Moreover, as Dr. Johanna Soet has observed, for most students graduation will involve “saying goodbye to a way of life, a familiar place, financial dependence on parents, and good friends and family.” In a brief article written for parents of graduating seniors while she was a member of the counseling center staff at the University of Michigan, Dr. Soet identifies several stages of the transition process for graduates. She also suggests several ways that graduates and their families might signify the transition with meaningful rituals. To read her thoughts, click here.
