Career Development

Working closely with all the College stakeholders, the staff in the Office of Career Development strives to educate students with the knowledge, skills, and habits in the areas of professional communication, etiquette, resume and cover letter preparation, interview skills, networking, personal branding, graduate school preparation, and job search strategies.
