Welcome to the Career Development Center!

Career Development Mission

Our mission is simple. We’re dedicated to providing you with the tools needed to ensure your success in an internship, a job opportunity, a career, or beyond. We can’t go to the interview with you and we won’t be the one that gets the call when you’ve been hired but we CAN give you the guidance and advice to make sure your employment journey starts out right.

Things like resume writing, interview skills, workshops, job searches, and career/personality surveys are all part of what we offer in the Career Services office.  Stop by today to see how we can help you along your way!
