Our goal in Career Development is to empower and equip individuals to embrace their vocational calling and engage in opportunities to make meaningful career and life contributions. We strive to provide quality services and resources for students, faculty & staff, alumni, employers, and community partners.
We hope to facilitate a greater understanding of how God created you and help you discern the call placed upon your life! Whether you are entering the world of work for the first time or changing careers, we seek to equip you with the knowledge and skills to do so with confidence. We are committed to guiding you through the process of establishing professional and lifework goals and taking the steps to achieve them. Your success matters to us!
Counseling & Assessments
By taking a variety of assessments and discussing the results with a career development professional, you can identify majors and career options that best align with your unique combination of preferences, skills, interests, and values. Such alignment is linked to increased job satisfaction, motivation, and productivity. Even if you have a sense of what God is calling you to do, an appointment with a career development professional can help you develop a plan for fulfilling it. Schedule an appointment today!
Career & Occupational Information
What can I do with this major? The world of work is full of possibilities. By researching various occupations, you can select one that best fits you. Occupational information helps you know what to expect in relation to educational requirements, projected growth, day-to-day functions, and salary and wages. We have assembled a collection of some of the best resources to equip you.
Internships are the new entry level job! Every bachelor’s degree in the traditional undergraduate program includes an internship component. Internships are designed to prepare you for a career in your chosen field by integrating academic coursework with practical application. It is also an opportunity for you to acquire knowledge, refine your skills and abilities, obtain valuable work experience, and expand your network. We partner with companies and organizations in the local community to provide quality internship experiences.
Employment & Job Search
In this economy, competition is fierce. Your success in securing employment involves customized and targeted materials that showcase your accomplishments. One size does not fit all when it comes to resumes and cover letters. We provide you with job search tips and strategies for how to present your qualifications effectively and confidently – online, on paper, and in person. We also facilitate connections with potential employers and internships.
Is graduate school in your future? We provide resources and assistance in identifying programs of study, preparing for tests, writing essays, and performing in interviews. If an advanced degree is part of your career development, we want to help you get there!
