The Career Development Center looks forward to partnering with you as we help students prepare for the next stages of their career. Our staff members assist students and alumni in a variety of areas, including exploring potential majors, resume and cover letter critiques, interview preparation, job search assistance, graduate school application and essay assistance, and other career planning questions.
Refer Your Students
Refer students who are undecided in their major to the Career Development Center. We provide individual career counseling, and administer career assessment tests including the Strong Interest Inventory and FOCUS2 (an online career guidance program).
Introduce your class to the Career Development Center by scheduling a presentation with us. We will present a workshop or speak to your class on the career or employment-related topic of your choosing.
Mock interviews provide students with an excellent opportunity to practice and sharpen their interviewing skills. Interviews for employment opportunities and graduate school admission can be conducted and videotaped. The staff will review and critique the interview with the student. Several faculty members include this exercise as part of their curriculum each semester.
The Career Development Center hosts recruiters from a variety of local and national employers, who come to campus to attend job fairs, hold information sessions, or meet with students in our private interview rooms. Students and alumni may view the list of companies, submit a resume, and sign up for an interview slot on our FalconLink system online.
Please encourage employers to make contact with our office and take advantage of our electronic job posting, on-campus interviewing, and job fairs.
