Employers tell us they want college graduates with critical thinking skills, excellent written and oral communication skills, the ability to work in a team, the ability to solve problems and to have real-world experience in their field. Your classroom experience will prepare you with the skills and we’ll help you secure an internship. During your internship, you’ll get hands-on training, build a professional network and convert your academic knowledge into industry skills.
In addition to internships, the Career Development Center can help you prepare in the following ways:
- Career Advising
- Career Assessment
- Career Exploration
- Choosing or changing your major
- Workshops, panels, special presentations, guest speakers
- Career fairs and networking events
- Applying for graduate school
Let’s get started.
Self-assessment is the first step in the career planning process. Your skills, interests, personality, and values play an important role in your career choice. Assessment tools can help you learn more about yourself so you’re able to make more informed decisions.
The job market is very competitive. Cover letters, resume and interviewing skills provide a way to showcase your verbal and written abilities in a way that captures the attention of prospective employers. Many professional opportunities come from social media networking. It’s important to explore the pros and cons of social media and manage yours in a professional manner.
We’ll help you present all of your strengths in the best light to market yourself as the best candidate.
Stop by the Career Development Office and we’ll show you how.
