Career Services offers tools to help you identify your personality preferences, work interests, skills and strengths. You can meet with a career counselor one-on-one or attend a workshop. These assessments can provide you with information needed to identity and establish a career path.
Co-operative Education and Internships
Opportunities are available to gain on the job experience, earn income and/or receive academic credit while working in a job related to your major. In collaboration with the Academic Departments, these can be tailored to fit your needs and abilities.
If you’re a current student, alumni or a community member, you are encouraged to attend one of our job fairs. These fairs can be extremely advantageous for job-seekers, as there are often numerous prospective employers in attendance, making it easy for you to make contact with more recruiters in a single day.
It’s also a great opportunity to formally introduce yourself to an employer and make an excellent first impression as you personally hand them your resume and other credentials.
Networking Events and Other Program
Throughout the year, Career Services hosts various networking events specific to academic majors and industries. These events are typically less formal and more intimate than job fairs. These are great opportunities to interact with industry professionals and practice your networking skills. Additionally, Career Services partners with many student organizations and other university offices/departments and offers career-related workshops and programs.
