The Career Development Office (CDO) offers a full range of resources and services to assist both students and employers in achieving their goals. Our primary mission is to equip students and graduates with the resources and skills to successfully generate and take advantage of professional opportunities. In support of this mission, the CDO guides students and alumni in the use of tools and strategies for successful job searches. The cornerstone of our service is our one-on-one career advising.
We also assist employers in identifying and recruiting talented students and alumni to fulfill their employment needs. We provide a number of opportunities for employers to connect with our students, including career panels, networking events, workshops, mock interviews, job fairs, recruitment programs, and an electronic job bank. With our in-depth knowledge of the student and alumni population, the CDO can guide employers to the right candidate for their organization.
Whether you are looking for a job or seeking employees, the CDO is here to help, so please don’t hesitate to reach out if the CDO can assist you in any way.
