Career Services offers a variety of services and resources designed to meet the professional career employment needs of graduating students. Encourage your students to start thinking about their post-graduation plans at least 9 months prior to their graduation date.
Students should start researching companies and agencies well in advance of graduation to help target the job search and to develop a plan of action. Utilize resources such as CareerShift or Indeed.com to see who is hiring and when applications need to be submitted. Many employers start recruiting May graduates as early as September or October of the previous year.
Résumés should be in top shape and ready to impress employers. Students should take advantage of résumé reviews and workshops offered by Career Services or make an appointment for personalized assistance.
Career Services presents two major career expos each year where employers are available to meet with students directly to accept résumés for full-time positions and often, to interview on campus after the career expo. Our career expos are held during the Fall and Spring semesters.
Attend employer information sessions to learn more about career opportunities and to network with employer representatives.
