What can Career Services really do for me?

The role of the Career Services department is to help you build effective job search strategies, share successful networking tips, provide resume and cover letter assistance and share new job openings in your field. Our services have a proven track record of providing successful support to students and graduates — and we just keep growing those resources every day. While we can't promise you a job (only you can get you a job) we can promise you this — we will work as hard as you do to increase your opportunity for employment after graduation.
