The Mission of Career Development

The mission of Career Development is to support career preparedness by encouraging career advising, career development & counseling, programming, and continued instruction. Through interactions with the members of Career Development, our plan is for students to comprehend and prepare for trends that are related to local hiring efforts, while setting goals that align with their values, interests, personality and skillsets. Also, engagement with Career Development will allow students an opportunity to apply academic competencies acquired in the classroom to experiential opportunities offered by industry leaders.

Thanks to Career Development, I am now confident that I have a professional looking resumè that will help me stand out among other competitors.
