We help students master the job interview. There is no better way to prepare for the job interview than by experiencing an "actual" interview. At the Office of Career Services, our staff or recruiter volunteers will conduct mock interviews with your students, then provide a constructive critique of their performance and effective interview strategies.
We know employers who want to know you. The Office of Career Services works directly with employers, who often ask for the contact information of faculty members who could help them to identify top students. And if you have contacts within organizations or companies you think we should be engaged with, please let us know.
Our career fairs attract many recruiters to one event. Our fairs provide excellent opportunities for students and faculty to meet companies in their industries of choice and establish a network of contacts.
We assist in identifying quality internships. Internships are such an important part of your students' overall educational experience. Through our network of employers, we can help your students identify internship opportunities that will best serve them in their academic and professional pursuits.
We can "fill in" when you cannot meet a class by presenting a career related topic. Let us “pinch hit” for you by scheduling a career services workshop. Staff members are available to conduct a wide variety if workshops for your students, including:
