Preparing students for life-long careers

Career services supports career learning and preparedness by encouraging students to take advantage of advising and programming opportunities. 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.
