Career Competitiveness

Whether you know your career goal or not, building your knowledge and skills both in and out of the classroom will make you a strong job candidate. In addition, you should know how to present your qualifications to employers on paper, online, and in person. Here are some resources to help you do so. 
 
Career Center Programs
  • Events include employer and alumni panels, networking events, and job search skills workshops.
  • Externships last one to ten days and take place at an employer's work site.

Meeting with a career counselor, you can:
  • Identify your existing work and transferrable skills as well as new skills to develop.
  • Learn about, and learn to use, effective job and internship search strategies.
  • Review your resume and cover letter; build your interviewing and networking skills.
