About Us

We encourage you to use our website to become familiar with our wide range of services, programs and resources. We serve undergraduate students, graduate students and alumni from across all academic disciplines by helping them define and take the steps necessary to achieve their career goals. Every semester, the Career Center hosts over 60 career development workshops, information sessions and special events such as internship and job fairs, graduate school fairs, employer panels and site visits, and an interview program where employers offer practice or mock interviews for students. Students also have access to numerous career resources and services, including one-on-one career coaching appointments, career assessment tests, career workshops on various topics, and the ability to earn two career certificates. In addition, students may take advantage of resume’ review walk-in hours, a career closet for professional clothing, and a photographer for free professional headshots.
