roundThings just got a little bit easier for Roslyn alumni who are currently in the job-seeking market. The Roslyn High School counseling Department recently launched a career center website for Roslyn graduates. The site can be found within the district website, www.roslynschools.org.

“We are pleased to announce an exciting initiative for the benefit of Roslyn alumni who are just starting out in their careers,” said assistant superintendent for Curriculum
and Instruction, Allison Brown. “The new online career center is designed to help recent graduates from Roslyn to match their career goals with members of the community who may be able to offer professional and business opportunities.”

Brown added that the site is designed to facilitate communication between graduates of the high school who are now completing school and members of the Roslyn community with experience in the fields that the students are pursuing.

Potential careers and internship opportunities are available on the site to people who have graduated from the high school, college or other post-secondary program. Alumni are also encouraged to send their resumes to the career site so employers can thoroughly review them and try to match them with job opportunities.

Roslyn alumni who may have a career or internship opportunity for a graduate can also visit the site and respond directly to applicants using the contact information on the posted resume.

In other news, director of Guidance, Art Mandel put together a presentation of college acceptances in the district in the 2015 school year. Some of the highlights included multiple acceptances to Ivy League schools and other competitive institutions and a high rate of state school applications.

Among Ivy League schools with the highest application totals, Cornell University had 44 applications with 17 acceptances thus far. The University of Pennsylvania had 28 applications with 9 acceptances and Columbia had 16 applications with 3 acceptances.

The most competitive and popular schools as far as application and acceptance rates are concerned, include SUNY Binghamton, Indiana University, Tulane University, the University of Michigan and Penn State.
