Career Services

Individualized career coaching and advising

We work closely with you to assess your goals and interests, explore your career options, and map out an effective career plan, including job search strategies.

  • Career planning – We have several tools to assess your strengths, identify gaps, and suggest which jobs or career paths might suit you best.
  • Handshake – Handshake, the most recognized career tool on university campuses, makes it easy to search for internship and job postings, perform company research, and apply online for positions.
  • Mock interview sessions – The best way to prepare for the all-important job interview is to practice. We videotape you during a brief mock interview and give you tips on how to improve your performance.
  • Salary negotiation and other professional development workshops – We offer many workshops on writing your resume, networking effectively, using social media in your job search, and other topics that build your professional skill set.
