What can the Career Development Center do for you?

We have several options for you to incorporate career planning into your courses. Each section highlights opportunities for students to connect with Career Development staff and resources. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Class/Organization Presentations

    What is the key to finding a career post-graduation? Internships help students explore their field of interest and gain much needed experience.
