The mission of the Career Services Center is to support the institution's academic programs by designing, implementing, and managing services and programs that meet the career and educational development and employment needs of students. The Career Services Center offers services which include: career development and placement counseling; cooperative education classes for credit; workshops and seminars on career-related subjects; assistance with résumé writing and interviewing; graduate and professional schools, career and job fair programs for all students. We also work with employers on recruiting efforts for full-time jobs, co-ops, and internships.
The Cooperative Education Program provides career guidance to students and related academic study to practical work situations by coordinating full-time college studies with employment in business, industry, government, or service organizations. Students spend a portion of their time in the classroom and another portion in off-campus positions usually related to their major course of study. This program enables students to “earn while they learn” and offers them an opportunity to gain experience in the world of work.
Career Services offers workshops and individual counseling to help students with decisions concerning graduate school selection. Also, information and applications for national qualifying exams (GRE, GMAT, LSAT, etc.) are provided and on-campus interviews with selected graduate schools are conducted each year. As an additional resource, GraduateGuide.com is a directory of searchable graduate school listings with testing information, financial aid and graduate school news.
Internships are an important part of experiential learning. Simply put, having an internship experience allows you to better understand prospective work environments and allows you to make networking connections, as well as gain real world skills. Depending on your career goals, your internship experiences can vary widely. Employers value internship experiences, which may help set you apart from other candidates when interviewing for an entry level position.
