Your Career Development Office—Get to Know Us
The mutual goal of both our faculty and The Office of Career Development is student success. By working together, faculty and Career Development can ensure a successful transition from student to a member of the workforce.
We help your students find the right fit—We help students determine the right career for their interests, career goals, skills, values, and personality. During their academic careers, students return to the Office of Career Development to develop essential job search skills. We are a student's best resource for job outlook, salary, and employment trend information.
We know employers who want to know you—At the Office of Career Development, we work directly with employers, who often ask for the contact information of faculty members who could help them to target students in a particular major or discipline. Ideally, employers would like to develop mutually beneficial relationships with faculty, and can provide many forms of support. We can facilitate that connection.
Our career fairs attract many recruiters to one event—Our annual Job & Internship Fair provides an excellent opportunity for your students to meet representatives from the companies in their industries of choice and establish a network of contacts. We will help your students research the employers beforehand and provide tips so they are prepared to effectively engage recruiters.
We help students master the job interview—There is no better way to prepare for the job interview than by experiencing an "actual" interview. At the Office of Career Development, our staff or recruiter volunteers will conduct mock interviews with your students, then provide a constructive critique of their performance and effective interview strategies.
We'll bring the information to your class—We specialize in conducting presentations to the classes you teach and the student organizations you advise about a host of career-related topics, such as resume writing, jobs search strategies, and interviewing skills. In addition, we can arrange presentations by professionals.
