Career Development & Opportunities

Together We Succeed

It’s our goal to get you started on your career by giving you all the tools and resources you need. Our career counselors view career decision making as an on-going “life-planning” process, rather than a one-time choice. Through one-on-one meetings with students, career counselors help evaluate and improve self-understanding, knowledge of the work world, and decision making skills. By integrating the results of a variety of assessment tools, they can also help you find ways to implement career choices and to facilitate adjustment to work and educational environments. All career counseling services are confidential.

Career Counseling Services are Available to:

  • All Current Full-time Students (who have attended for at least three quarters)
  • Recent Alumni (within Six Months of Graduation)

Meet with a Career Counselor to:

  • Gain a better understanding of your skills, interests, and personality and learn how they relate to your career possibilities
  • Increase your knowledge of the job search process
  • Write an effective resume
  • Gain greater confidence in interviewing skills
  • Learn about the process of applying to graduate and/or professional school
  • Learn how to write an effective personal statement
