Career Services

Preparing students for life-long careers

In light of COVID-19 and its continuing impact, we want our students and the Tri-Cities community to know that your health and safety is our top priority. We are committed to being here for you through our new online format, and providing you with relevant resources for the times we are in. Please feel free to access our services virtually by setting up an appointment via e-mail. We are happy to meet with you over the phone or video conference call, and will guide you through the steps.

Career services supports career preparedness by encouraging career advising, career development and counseling, programming, and continued instruction. Our plan is for students to comprehend and prepare for trends that are related to local hiring efforts, while setting goals aligned with their values, interests, personality and skill sets. Engaging with career services allows students an opportunity to apply academic competencies acquired in the classroom to experiential opportunities offered by industry leaders.
