How do I Help My Student...
Choose a Major/Career Direction
Studies show that people are more successful and satisfied in jobs and career fields consistent with their skills, values, interests, and personality traits. Gathering information about these qualities is called self-assessment. We have many resources that can help students select a major that matches their self assessment.
Explore What They Can Do with their Major
The What Can I Do with this Major website provides typical career paths associated with majors, employers that hire people with degrees in the major, strategies job seekers can do to maximize their chances of being hired, and lists of websites that provide additional information.
Search for Jobs and Internships
The Career Development Center subscribes to four online internship databases that list local, regional, national and international internship opportunities in a variety of fields.
Prepare for Graduate School
The Career Development Center has resources that can help students identify programs that match their interests, prepare for entrance exams, and create admissions essays and personal statements. During the academic year, we offer practice exams, sponsor special workshops on the graduate school admission process, and bring a variety of schools to campus via our career fairs and information tables.
