Real Professionals. Giving Advice. For the Real World.

During the month of April, the Office of Career Services (OCS) is is hosting thirteen events to help students prepare for their future career as part of their Professional Development Month.

All students are encouraged to seek out OCS, however, many of this year's events are aimed for juniors and seniors seeking jobs and internships. The events provide students with opportunities to meet with possible employers and learn about the professional world.

The Office of Career Services (OCS) hopes the month will remind students of the opportunities OCS offers in preparing them for the real world.

"All of the programs allow students to be informed about things they did not think they needed to know," said student Jillian Tonelli, an intern in the Office of Career Services.

"Many students have been able to find a job through networking. It is a great experience," said senior intern Jackie McEvoy.
