The Office of Career Development’s mission is to proactively assist students with career planning initiatives from matriculation to beyond graduation. Educational opportunities range from personality and interest inventories to determine career direction, to preparation of professional materials and skills related to the job, internship and graduate school search process. The office will introduce students to professional career resources, provide information on community and campus career events, and allow access to employer job postings.
Career Development provides area employers with resources to promote professional opportunities on campus. The office promotes a holistic and educational environment– through multiple opportunities and events– that focuses on the career goals related to the individual student.
