Finding the First Job

An intensive, career development program helps seniors identify that first position. Numerous events take place on campus throughout the academic year including a career fair, graduate school fair and Education Opportunities Day. These events along with career panels featuring speakers help seniors gain perspective on the process. Students can participate in the Alumni Career Advising Program by searching for alumni working in a mutual area of interest, connecting with them individually online or in person and gaining valuable information and job-seeking strategies for specific career fields through a cooperative mentoring program.

Recruitment: On and Off Campus

While some employers and graduate schools interview students right on campus, others expect students to go to them. The Career Center helps students access both types of opportunities through the on-campus recruiting program, Career Hound, job fairs, graduate school fairs, and networking.
