Career Development for Students

About the Center for Career Development

The Center for Career Development is the university's centralized career planning and development and student recruitment center. We connect students and alumni with employers by offering our Career Readiness Certificate, hosting workshops, conducting on-campus interviews, annual career fairs, and coordinating the cooperative (Co-op) education program, which provides students with real-world work experience in their chosen major.
