Where ever you are in the career planning process, our office is ready to help! We offer a variety of resources to help you explore your options, clarify your interests, and connect with employers.
The Center is a great resource for first-year students as they start their professional development journey. Besides visiting the Center to learn about all of our resources and opportunities—first-year students can also begin to explore what they love to do, and what skills and interests they have!
Through our connection with The Ingram Commons, we have developed several opportunities for first-year students to gain professional development skills, including workshops, seminars, one-on-one coaching, and exploration activities.
Professional development is so important regardless of your year or major. We can help first-year students with their first leadership positions or campus interviews. More importantly, professional development skills will carry over into your academic classes, social interactions, and student organizations.
The Center for Student Professional Development partners with the Career Development Services office of the Graduate School to provide career resources to graduate students.
The Graduate School offers career services to all PhD, MS, MA, MLAS and MFA students. Additional information including walk-in hours is available on the Graduate School Career Development website.
