Career Services and Employer Relations Mission

As a member of the Student Affairs team, our office provides a welcoming and supportive environment to assist our diverse students and alumni with important career needs. We offer assistance in finding a good career fit for your unique values, skills, interests, and personality through career exploration assessments, career counseling, resume and cover letter development, interview preparation, and job/internship search techniques.  We assist you in considering the next step in your career– choosing a major, exploring internships and other experiential activities, part-time and full-time positions, and graduate school.

The Career Services and Employer Relations team is here to help make connections between students/alumni and employers. In the 2016-17 academic year we hosted over 500 employer partners at over 200 career-related events. We are dedicated to providing all of our internship & job seekers, as well as our network of employers, with a high level of service and assistance.

Our staff assists with:

  • the job and internship search
  • editing resumes and cover letters
  • conducting mock interviews
  • advising on choosing a major/minor
  • applying to graduate schools
  • counseling on potential careers and more!

If you would like to make an appointment with a career counselor please stop by our office located in the McCarthy Center, room 412, or call us at 508-626-4625.
