Our Career Services Team is dedicated to assisting YOU in the discovery of YOUR future career! Looking for a job (on or off campus) or an internship, our team can help! We also provide opportunities to work with a First Year Career Pathway Coach or Career Advisor on choosing a college major and exploring careers.

Undecided Students should attend a Career Information Session. In this workshop, you will learn the importance of choosing a major early; find out what resources are available to help you begin the major selection process; and begin to develop a major selection plan of action. Workshops are offered throughout the semester. Register today - space is limited!
