Career Development Services (CDS) Center educates and assists students and alumni in exploring, clarifying, evaluating and implementing career and employment decisions. The CDS Center offers a variety of resources to assist students in career preparation activities.

- Critique and edit job search correspondence (resumes/cover letters)
- Provide advice for securing experience (volunteer/internship/research) to help clarify and build qualifications for careers upon graduation
- Assist with preparing for interviews
Career Counseling by Career Community
Career Counselors advise by Career Communities. Career Communities allows students in similar career paths to explore, make connections and launch a career. Communities provide information, opportunities for exploration and experience, and mutual support in a variety of ways. Through these communities, students cultivate professional skills with guidance from career counselors, industry experts, alumni, faculty and employers in their chosen field of interest.
Please note: The CDS staff cannot assist with course selection or other academic advising issues. For these needs, please see an academic advisor.
