How can Career Services help you?

Career Services staff are experts in helping you find the right academic or career path. Through career counseling, staff are able to help students narrow down future career choices.

We provide the Myers Briggs Personality Assessment and Strong Interest Inventory for assistance in assessing and clarifying the best options for career achievement, focusing on your strengths in order to obtain a career/life balance.

Career Services and the Alumni Association have partnered up to create a mentor program for our students. The Mentor Program was set to create relationships between students, alumni and friends who are willing to share their professional insights.

This program is designed to serve as an opportunity for students to ask community and business leaders questions about degree programs and careers, or simply to receive first hand knowledge of what to expect after receiving a degree in a particular discipline.
