Career Development

Whether you're searching for your first job, considering graduate school, or looking to make a mid-career change, the Center for Internships and Career Services is here for you. The following are some of the areas in which we can assist our alumni.

Career Counseling/Assessment

We offer career counseling, including individual counseling sessions in-person, phone and e-mail to help alumni identify and explore possible career paths. Career assessment complements the career counseling process and may include some or all of these elements:

  • Identifying your interests, abilities, preferences, and work values
  • Meeting with a career counselor to facilitate the self-assessment process
  • Recommending and helping you to interpret assessments such as the FOCUS 2 Career Planning Software, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), and Self-Directed Search (SDS)
  • Providing job listings from area employers

Résumé and Cover Letter Writing

Developing a professional résumé and cover letter is an absolute must for most anyone who is searching for an internship or job. We provide assistance in the form of guidelines sheets, an action verb list, and samples for you to review. In addition, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with a career counselor to tailor your résumé and cover letter to your specific objective.

Conducting a Job Search

Today's job market calls for a variety of different approaches to identify appropriate job prospects, including reviewing job postings online and in newspapers, contacting employment agencies, joining professional associations, and attending job fairs.  The Center for Internships and Career Services provides guidance on all of the above. We also help you cultivate the below skills, which will enhance your job prospects and perhaps even your starting level of compensation.

  • Networking: It's not just what you know; it's who you know. Building and maintaining a professional network is important throughout your professional career.
  • Interviewing: Preparation, involving both research and practice, is the key to successful interviewing. We hold workshops on interviewing basics. In addition, we schedule individual appointments to address specific concerns and allow opportunities for interview role-playing.
  • References: A professional résumé and sharp interviewing skills are a great start. Strong references from professors, employers, and others can secure that coveted job opportunity. We explain how to go about collecting your references.
  • Salary negotiation: Once you have received a job offer, you and your employer must decide on a mutually acceptable starting salary. We show you how to approach this often delicate aspect of the job search.
