The Office of Career Services is dedicated to helping students discover their interests through various internships, workshops and career-related events both on and off-campus. Through these experiences, students develop relationships with professionals in their field and build their network. We have an array of resources to help guide students through the process of creating a resume and cover letter; applying for an internship, job, or graduate school; and finding volunteering opportunities. Our goal is to help our students gain real-world experience while in college as well as help them find the career they are most passionate about pursuing after graduation.
