Career Services

The office of Career Services provides a variety of services and resources to students. Its function is to aid students in their employment searches, major and career exploration, as well as foster development as upcoming professionals.

Individual Career Counseling: A career counselor is able to see students one-on-one in order to discuss and explore concerns regarding a student’s major & career options, graduate school advisement, job hunt or topics related to career development.

Career Assessments: If you are confused or uncertain about the major you would like to declare, a career counselor will meet with you and if necessary administer a career assessment. Assessments point out an individual’s skills, interests and personality type in relation to various occupations.

Workshops: Throughout the semester, career services workshops are offered in order to provide students with essential tips and advice that are needed as they transition into future professionals. Topics include: Resume and Cover Letter Writing, Interviewing Skills, Job Search Strategies, etc.

Career Services Events: During the academic year, there are several events that take place. Annually, there’s the Fall Graduate School Prep Series and Spring Career Fair. Other events include informational sessions, guest-speaker workshops and recruitment events which take place in the Academic Village.

Resources: There are a variety of resources available when you visit the Career Center. For example, books and videos regarding career exploration and preparation. In addition, graduate school, and GRE brochures, as well as other guides are available. Computer workstations where students can work on their resume or career related material are accessible.
