Career Counseling

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.  Career Counselors supply guidance on preparation steps, experiences and connections needed to be competitive in the workplace.

Career Counselors will

  • Assist in identifying career paths by engaging in assessments to discover skills, interests and personality
  • 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.
