Planning for a Successful Career

Whether just beginning college or approaching graduation, the Career Services Center can help you explore majors and careers, seek internships and develop professional and job search skills. The center is also here to help you prepare for future success either in assisting with your job search or by pursuing advanced degrees. 

We have many offerings throughout the year to assist in the successful transition from classroom to the workplace. These programs will help you gain experience, secure a job and grow as a professional.

  • Career Exploration: Figuring out what career path to take can be confusing. Learn what you can do with a major.
  • Career-Related Experiences: Internships, part-time work and volunteering are excellent ways for you to gain valuable experience, learn about careers and start to network with professionals. We can assist you in finding these opportunities. 
  • Job Search:  We offer one-on-one, individual career counseling to meet your individual needs. This professional guidance provides resume and cover letter critiques, mock interviews, interest assessment testing to help explore career opportunities and clarify personal goals, job search preparation and job fair information.
  • Professional: We facilitate lifelong career management by helping you develop the professional skills necessary to become contributing members of the workplace, community and world. 

Explore this website for information, events and resources. Current students and alumni can schedule a one-on-one meeting with a career services professional.

Community Service

Career Services happily supports the community in which we live.

  • In the office - Staff members participate in Jeans for Charity program. We each donate $35.00 per semester to a charity chosen and agreed upon by staff members which allows us to wear jeans on Fridays. In addition, we wear a tag displaying the charity's logo and also display a sign in our office for visitors to learn about the program and charity. We have donated to North Hills Community Outreach, Alzheimer's Association, Gilda's Club, and Global Links to name a few.
  • On-site - Each year we partner with a charity and get out into the community. We're amazing with plasterboard and paint, as well as hammers and drills! But we we're also adept at wrapping gifts during the holidays and we can tie a mean bow!
