How Can the Career Services & Student Employment Help Students?

The Career Services & Student Employment Center exists to ease you through the transition from student to working professional. We help find what profession and company fits you best. Starting as early as your first year, the Career Center provides resources to help you develop a strategic plan for locating internships, on-campus student employment, or exploring career options. 

Our goal is to assist students in integrating their university education with their career aspirations. In addition, the office engages students as active participants in their career development with workshops on interviewing, resume building, and professionalism in the workplace. Finally, we facilitate the connection between students and local business partners to provide opportunities to explore and interact with professionals in various career fields.
