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.

In the 2016-17 academic year we hosted over 500 employer partners at over 200 career-related events.

Careers, Technology and You
A representative from IBM will be the master of ceremonies for the Careers, Technology and You event this year. In addition there will be panelists from local industry (Mathworks, TJX, BOSE Corp., Rocket Software and more) who will share their observations and experiences and innovation within their respective fields. All of the panelists would love for students to come with questions. It might be helpful if you would encourage your students to think of questions before they come. In addition to great information and knowledgeable speakers, there will be fun give-a-ways and students will have an opportunity to speak with the panelists after the event.
