Career Center Events for Fall 2010

Despite how budget cuts have changed the landscape of our campus, impacting many offices including our own, we nonetheless are committed to continuing top-notch service to our stake holders for the upcoming fall semester.  You’ll find that although we have streamlined our services to match our current resources and staffing, we did so with an eye for the in-demand services and programs to best serve our students, the campus community and employers.

Below  are a few key events and programs we are offering to help your students with their job or internship search.  Attached is the Career Center  programming calendar which has our complete listing of services for you to share with you.  


The Career Center has moved to a new location in Administration 255 (located behind Clark Hall, and adjacent to Dudley Moorhead Hall).  We are thrilled about our new facilities as they will provide us an opportunity to more effectively serve students, employers, and the College of Science.
