Career and Professional Development in Practice

We believe that specialized events and focused learning opportunities help students successfully navigate through the career development process. We are also in each student’s Catalyst course at least once each academic year to ensure our students are making real world connections from day one. Each opportunity is evaluated for maximum learning effectiveness. Examples include:

  • Networking workshops and events
  • Professional panels
  • Resume building events
  • Alumni Career Days
  • Mock interviews with business professionals
  • Take a Student to Work Day
  • Career Treks
  • Webinars
  • Career fairs including our annual WorkForce Career, Internship and Graduate Fair
