Overview/Mission

The Career Services office runs regularly scheduled job search skills workshops, organizes job and volunteer fairs, and coordinates alumni career panels, on-campus recruitment opportunities and various career-focused special events throughout the year.

In addition to developing and fostering positive relationships with recruiters both locally and nationally, Career Services offers an online job listing service that enables job seekers to post resumes and search full-time, part-time and volunteer positions as well as internships. Job seekers can also take advantage of online career information delivery and exploration resources (Focus 2 and Choices) designed to help users develop self-knowledge related to career choice and work performance by identifying, assessing, and understanding their competencies, interests, values, and personal characteristics.

Career Services recognizes the need for career development over the lifespan, and thus promotes a greater awareness within the institution regarding the importance of developing professional interests and competencies and exploring future career possibilities.
