The Career Resource Center (CRC) offers a variety of resources to meet the needs of students and alumni at all stages of their academic and career planning. With an educational focus, the CRC collaborates with the Academic Advising Office and the Center for Student Development to help students explore majors and career options and integrate academic experiences with career goals. By having advising staff facilitating movement through a more structured academic and career planning process, students can accomplish their career goals incrementally over their college years, beginning with their initial orientation and continuing through (and sometimes beyond) graduation.

CRC services include:

  • Individual counseling and group sessions on career related issues and major choice
  • Skills and interest assessment
  • Career information library
  • Development of resumes and cover letters and job search and interviewing skills
  • Fieldwork and internship advisement and placement related to major
  • Americorps National Community Service Program
  • Access to hundreds of listings of employers for permanent internships, summer and community service opportunities
  • Career fairs and special recruitment events
  • Credential service through which references may be kept on file to support applications for employment or graduate school
