How We Help Students & Alumni


helping a student with a resume

We Are Here For You!

The Center for Career Development is focused on student success. We define student success with the following equation:

Academics + Jobs = Student Success

We believe that students attend college to learn academics specific to their major, but truthfully, the academics are only half of the process. To truly be successful, students need the opportunities to network and further develop their soft skills so that they can ultimately land the career of their dreams. To assist students with reaching true student success, we offer free services and support through the Center for Career Development.

Some of our top services are outlined below.
