Career Services

Career services works with students, alumni and employers to connect graduate workforce goals with the needs of employers; this includes student career preparation and readiness, employer development and relationship building, and planning of events to connect the two entities.

This activity affords students and alumni the opportunity to integrate theory and methodology beyond the academic setting. Through the career services center the university will empower students with the tools and resources to obtain a quality career or transition into a four-year program.

Career Services supports community partnerships that are focused on career awareness or related initiatives.
