Today we present two items from the most recent “Career Connection” newsletter, published by the Badger Career Network.

Tell us about your first “real” job
Did you learn the hard way that casual Fridays don’t mean shorts and flip-flops? Did you nearly give up on finding a “real” job, only to be offered a great position a few days later? We want to hear your first job stories — from funny to inspiring and everything in between.

In 100 words or less, e-mail us your most memorable first-job moments (changing names of people and companies when appropriate). We’ll post stories on the Badger Career Network website, and three entries will be chosen at random to win $25 Target gift cards. To be eligible for the drawing, send your submission no later than Friday, December 17, 2010.

Networking your way through the holidays
With the holiday season upon us, it’s time to gear up for parties and celebrations! Aside from picking out gifts, it’s also a time to pick up your networking. The holidays are great for mingling and making important connections. Learn how to make the most of your holiday networking opportunities.
