Career Development Opportunities for Students

I would like to take a moment to tell you about our February career development events.  Please share this information with students in your classes, programs and offices.

We also have a new initiative this spring.  Each Wednesday of the semester, the Griff Center will host our “Recruiters on Campus” series. We encourage students to stop by the Career Development Office, Horan-O’Donnell 014, 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., to informally chat with a variety of employers. 

Additionally, we continue to offer our Resume Wednesday program, each week from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., where students can stop by our office for on-the-spot resume review.   All events are listed in Handshake including on-campus recruiting.

Coming in March: 

March 13 – Suit Up – discounted professional clothing. Open to all students, faculty and staff

March 31 – Griff Fair – our annual job, internship and networking fair

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for your support!
