Empowering and preparing Wildcats to pursue meaningful careers and lives.

Career Services is a comprehensive career counseling and resource center designed to engage students as active participants in their career development from first year through alumni. The central purpose of Career Services is to help students prepare for academic and career success. We strive to serve the needs of the individual and create career-related programs and services that are responsive and accessible to our students and community.

Testimonial Image

Through the IEEE trip to Rising Stars 2020, I was able to both advance my personal knowledge about new technologies and gain insight into the industry I intend to pursue. When networking at the event I met individuals and companies who gave valuable insight into a career in Automation. Some information pertained to locations of manufacturing plants, while others gave me valuable career insight. The panels of speakers at the conference also provided information about what it would be like to work at their companies, which aided in my choice of intended employment.

Our Commitment to Diversity

Career Services recognizes, incorporates, and values similarities and differences as opportunities to learn and gain by working together as global citizens. We promote open dialogue and active listening, create an inclusive environment where people will thrive and feel a sense of belonging, and foster an atmosphere that demonstrates respect and appreciation for the diversity of ideas and thoughts of others. We value diverse perspectives and seek to help students develop the skills to be effective in the global workplace. (Adapted from the National Association of Colleges and Employers)
