Career Services and Programs
Career Services conducts a range of special programs designed to help students proactively explore occupational choices, gain first hand experience in a variety of work environments and meet working professionals.
Program of the Month: In collaboration with department faculty, counselors design and implement tailored workshops and presentations to assist you in understanding how your academic program may relate to meaningful career opportunities. Working professionals, representing careers of particular interest to our students, are invited directly into our classrooms to create a greater awareness of the opportunities and challenges of the contemporary workplace.
Classroom Instruction: Counselors frequently serve as guest speakers in the academic classroom, offering workshops on both career exploration and job search topics, including interest and skills identification, demonstrations of PINPOINT, our all inclusive computer career guidance system, informational interviewing, resume and cover letter development and interviewing skills. Faculty may contact career counselors to schedule a classroom presentation or an individual consultation on any career related issue.
Informational Interview Program: One of the best ways to explore a potential career path is to speak with people who are actually doing the work you think you might be interested in. Career counselors can help you arrange and prepare for an informational interview in your potential career field.
Career Mentor Program: This selective program is designed to match high achieving students with professional mentors from the workplace. Open by application to students in all major disciplines, selected participants have an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the workplace as well as valuable career advice.
