Career Development

Experience is needed for the job market and applications for graduate school. Many people are under the impression that working on career comes after college. But think about how full and expansive your resume can be by getting involved on campus, working during the summer as an intern or volunteering.

Alums, we are here to serve and assist in your job search too! Contact our office or utilize CareerPath to view open positions we have in our database. For alums who are not searching for jobs, there are ways for you to get involved as an alumni mentor.
