You can meet with a career counselor to discuss a variety of topics including your major, career options associated with your major, interviewing advice, resume and cover letter assistance, job and internship searching strategies, and more.
Self-assessment testing is available to students using the CSO. We provide students the opportunity to take four free assessments through the web resource, MyPlan, as well as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) for a nominal fee per assessment. These assessments provide feedback on career options that may be a fit given one's personality (MBTI) and/or interests (SII). Career counselors are available to help students interpret assessment results and connect those results to potential career paths.

Internship and Job Search Assistance
Students can meet with a counselor and receive personal advising on internship and job search strategies. Counselors will work with students on goal-setting along with refining job searching skills before teaching you how to pursue opportunities in the advertised and hidden job markets.
On-Campus Recruiting/Job Postings
Each year, many organizations visit campus and interview students in the CSO for full-time jobs and internships, as well as post jobs and internships for our students to view. We would encourage you to register on our online career system, JobGrove
, to view these opportunities and to begin to familiarize yourself with this helpful resource. Click HERE

Career Services’ staff members will conduct various workshops/presentations to student groups on career-related topics throughout the school year. Furthermore, our office coordinates numerous events for our students, including our annual fall Career Fair, Internship Fair, Camp Fair, alumni networking events, Professionalism & Etiquette Night, Resume Writing Seminars, alumni mock interviews, and many more. Students are encouraged to go to JobGrove and click on the “Career Fairs and Events” tab for a complete list of on- and off-campus opportunities throughout the school year.
Students can schedule a time to conduct a mock interview with a career counselor. This allows students the opportunity to hone their interviewing skills and receive constructive feedback in order to prepare for internship and full-time job interviews. Additionally, during the year, the CSO will bring in recruiters and alumni professionals to facilitate mock interviews with our students in order to simulate a more realistic experience for them and give them an opportunity to practice their skills in a non-threatening environment.
