Career Services – What We Do

Garcia Annex from the front.

Garcia Center – home of Career Services!

The Career Services office focuses on providing individual and group programming to aid students in developing a career plan to enter the world of work through student employment, co-op/internship,  or full-time employment.  The office administers fall and spring career fairs, workshops, an etiquette dinner, and Mix and Mingle reception training to help students understand the strategies necessary to make connections with employers locally and globally. The individual career advising sessions, workshops and classroom presentations focus on topics such as resume and cover letter writing, interviewing guidance and job search strategies with appropriate resources. Career Services encourages students to begin meeting with the staff early in their college career in order to discuss how to plan and implement their career goals.

Career Services is a department in the Division of Student Success and Enrollment Management and  is open to all students and alumni without regard to age, ancestry, color, disability, gender, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, spousal affiliation, or protected veteran status as outlined in federal and state anti-discrimination statutes. Career Services adheres to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals and expects employers and candidates to do the same.
