The Career Development Team consists of career counselors who provide assistance to students and alumni in developing application materials — resumes, cover letters, personal statements, LinkedIn profile — practicing interviewing and networking skills and learning the fundamentals of any successful job or internship search. They are eager to assist you in exploring majors, careers and career readiness. If it is your first time making a career appointment at the Career Center, it is recommended you meet with a career counselor to help you get started.

Considering graduate or professional school? We have counselors who specialize in these areas. Explore legal or health career options, discuss the application process, review personal statements and learn how to land opportunities post-graduation.
