The Office of Career Development offers a number of services that assist our students in their career development process. We will be glad to speak to your department, a class, or a student organization about career development resources, resume writing, interviewing skills, job search strategies, and other topics pertaining to career planning.

Many students do not know what career interests them – or even what major to select.  Career Development can guide students through those decisions both through one-on-one sessions and group workshops.

Faculty or staff who wish to post student positions can do so through Human Resources at this link:
