The Career Development office provides professional service to current students and alumni, and serves as a clearinghouse for information relating to exploration of majors, career paths, entry-level opportunities and graduate programs.
Career Development staff assist students in developing an understanding of themselves and the working world, and then integrating this information to make effective career decisions. The process includes interest inventories, online research, individual career counseling and workshops. Workshop topics include job search strategies, writing cover letters and résumés, networking, interviewing and applying to graduate programs.
Through the Career Development website, students can learn about job openings, on-campus interviews, local and regional job fairs and workshops.
The Career Library holds information on a variety of career paths, graduate schools and prospective employers, including school districts, social service agencies, businesses and governmental organizations.
Students also may utilize Career Development to learn about off-campus part-time job openings, schedule a mock interview and obtain registration materials for standardized tests such as the GRE, GMAT and LSAT.
