Career Services

Career Services provides career counseling, for-credit classes, information resources and tools, and on-campus events aimed at fostering the career development of students and alumni.

Career Services strives to:

  • Help students to develop competence and confidence in the career planning and job search process.
  • Empower students to discover their unique talents, gifts, skills and values.
  • Foster career exploration and decision-making through experiential learning activities.
  • Provide appropriate up-to-date career-related information and resources.
  • Develop and maintain relationships with organizations that offer meaningful community engagement and career opportunities to students and alumni.

Throughout the year, Career Services sponsors a variety of special events and activities on campus. In addition, Career Services is a resource center with job/internship listings, computers for students, reference books and materials, and a friendly staff who can help you find career-related information.

Students and alumni are encouraged to explore their career options by meeting with a counselor. A career counseling session might include self-assessment, career research, goal setting strategies or resume writing. We also offer a wide range of career classes for undergraduate students, such as Career Planning and Job Search, Business Etiquette, and Career Development Internships.
