New Mexico State University’s Career Services Office believes Your Tomorrow Begins Here.  Your path to a successful future starts with you. We will help you understand and shape your curiosities, passions, interests, and skills.  We will work along-side you and your academic advisers to aid you in understanding what you can do with your major, connect you with the occupational outlook for your major, and help you use Handshake to locate student employment, co-ops/internships, and global job search resources.

Our Vision

New Mexico State University’s Career Services Office will excel in student success and social mobility that every person has access to quality employment opportunities.  We will inspire and empower New Mexico State University students to own and shape their personal and professional journeys.

Our Mission

New Mexico State University’s centralized Career Services Office helps students explore career possibilities, and develop a powerful personal brand. We leverage our relationships with employers, alumni, faculty, and staff to facilitate inclusive meaningful experiences, connections, and partnerships that position students for success in their career fields as a student or alumni. We teach students how to identify career opportunities that fit their values, interests, personality, and skills through specialized programs that support lifelong Aggie career-readiness and the career competencies identified by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).
