Career Consulting for Your Students
We have strong expertise in career development in the areas of professional development and employment, and we help students explore career options and identify steps for their interests, career goals, skills, and values.
Classroom Presentations/Give Us "5"
We will bring the information to your class. We specialize in customized and standard presentations to classes and student organizations about a host of career-related topics such as resume writing, job search strategies, interviewing skills, and "What Can I Do with This Major?". In addition, we can arrange presentations by professionals (many of them alumni), who can relate their experiences and how their major has helped them in their careers.

We invite you and your students to our wide range of career programs. They provide faculty and students an opportunity to build and expand a network of contacts from diverse organizations and industries.

Missing a class may sometimes be unavoidable. When those situations arise, our "Don't Cancel Class" program provides a way for your class to meet as usual, but with one of our career professionals who will deliver a career-related presentation designed to help students prepare for the world of work.
