    Alumni Career Services

    Whether you’re a recent graduate searching for that first job or you’re a working-professional looking to advance, Career Services will be right alongside you. We offer a wide range of valuable resources. Email us, call us, or come in for a one-on-one appointment. Finding a career path that is rewarding and fits your needs isn’t going to be easy; it takes time and planning, strategic planning!

    Some areas for you to consider, and ask yourself:

    • What are some of my short-term goals?
    • What is the long-term goal?
    • Is graduate school or an M.B.A in my future?
    • What type of work or organization suits me?

    As Alumni, how should I use Career Services’ resources?

    • Identify areas of interest through a self-assessment or career exploration.
    • Brainstorm helpful methods designed to better equip you with the right tools for your job search.
    • Research and prepare for the” big interview” with us. Conduct a mock interview with your own career coach in your corner.
    • Polish up an existing resume that speaks to today’s job-market or create one from scratch.
    • Understand how best to use the tools and resources available to you, in order to better leverage your needs.
