Student Resources


Sometimes starting a job search can feel overwhelming, especially for a student juggling school work and additional campus commitments. At Career & Professional Development, we understand this and have compiled a variety of resources to support our career seekers every step of the way. You can help your student succeed by encouraging the use of these tools as part of their career development efforts.

The first step of any successful job search is to map out where you’re headed. Our Career Roadmap includes all the important milestones that prepare students to meet their career goals.

arrowPersonal Career Coaching

arrowResume Development

An effective resume is still one of the most essential tools to securing a job offer. Our resume development support helps students to highlight skills, summarize experiences, and make a great first impression.

arrowMock Interview Preparation

Interviews are a key way for a future employer to determine if a student is a good match both in experience and work style. We work with our students to ensure they feel confident and prepared for any interview experience.

arrowCareer Development Workshops

Workshops can help students develop expertise in a key area of interest, such as how to make an effective LinkedIn profile. Encourage your student to check our website regularly for new opportunities.

Whether students are seeking a new job or continuing their academic career in graduate school, our advisors can help build out strategies to put their goals within reach.

arrowNetworking Opportunities

Career & Professional Development offers year-round networking events including career fairs and alumni events to connect students to jobs. We also support job searches for on-campus employment through our online job database, Handshake.

arrowWork During School

Did you know your student can gain real-world experience right here on campus? Through the Federal Work Study program, awarded through the Financial Aid Office based on financial need, students can secure an on-campus job to help pay for educational expenses (including tuition) and gain valuable work experience. Financial need is based on information supplied on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Priority is given to those who file their FASFA by March 1; when all money has been awarded, no more funds are available for the year. Students do not need a work-study award to work on campus. Opportunities are posted on Handshake.
