Our Mission: To improve the futures of our students and alumni by providing guidance and support in the areas of professional and career development

Your career goals come into focus with the first job in your field after graduation.

The Career Services Department helps lay the foundation for your career search. We are a staff of dedicated advisors who work with students throughout their educational programs. We work with employers to market our graduates and their capabilities. We generate job leads, match graduate skills with employer needs, and help graduates learn the lifelong skill of conducting a successful job search.

What can the Career Services Department do for you? 

The Career Services Department works with students and graduates to help prepare them to pursue entry-level work in their chosen field of study.

Career Services offers assistance in pursuing employment opportunities to all eligible graduates, at no additional charge, for up to six months after graduation.
