Office professionals are available to offer individual support to students in their job search.

Understanding the needs of our diverse student body, Career Services offers flexible modes of service delivery and hours that include two evenings per week.  Contact us with your employment/job search questions or make an appointment for a virtual or in-person visit.  Office hours and contact information are below.  Some of the topics we can cover:

MEET WITH A JOB DEVELOPMENT SPECIALIST

Speak with our Job Development Specialist about your employment goals and learn how we can help.  Ask a question, or make an appointment for an in-person or virtual meeting by email.

RESUMES / COVER LETTERS / ONLINE PROFILE

We can assist with your resume, cover letter, or profile content.   Here are some suggestions to get you started.

INTERVIEW PRACTICE

If you have an upcoming interview and feel less than confident, or just want some general interview experience, let us help.  An in-person or virtual practice interview is available by appointment, and we also offer an interactive online system (SkillsFirst) to practice different types of interviews, record yourself, and get tips on how to answer interview questions.  See all our online options.
