For Students and Alumni
What services does the Career Center offer?
We are here to help you with your career planning needs, and we have a variety of in-person and online services available. Our in-person services include individual career counseling and job search advising appointments, career assessments, workshops, networking events, and on-campus recruiting opportunities. Our online services include Handshake, virtual workshops, career information databases, and other online career planning tools.
We can help you with just about anything related to planning for your career, including career and major exploration, creating a career preparation plan, searching for internships, searching for any type of job, networking strategies, personal branding, your online presence, LinkedIn, resumes, cover letters, and interviewing.
Is there a charge for Career Center services?
If you’re a current student, there is no charge for our services. The only charge you may incur is if you choose to take one of our expanded career assessments, which cost $15 each. (We do offer a free assessment which you may take.)
If you’re an alumni and you graduated in the last year, there is no charge for our services, with the exception of the assessments referenced above. If you graduated more than a year ago, there is a charge for some of our services if you are not a member of the Alumni Association. Visit our Alumni Services page for more information.
If I need help choosing a major, should I contact the Career Center or Advising and Academic Enhancement?
Both offices can assist in your major selection, and we offer joint workshops and classes to help with major selection. Which office you should visit for one-on-one assistance depends upon what you need. If you have questions about classes, degree plans, or the academic experience of a major, an academic advisor at Advising and Academic Enhancement will be best equipped to help you. If you need help assessing your interests, abilities, or work values, working through a conflict, researching available career paths, or planning for a career, a career counselor at the Career Center will be best equipped to help you.
I'm trying to access the Sigi3 career assessment, but it says I need to contact the Career Center.
Career assessments are used as part of the career counseling process, so in order to access the assessment, you’ll need to schedule an appointment with a career counselor. Your career counselor will help you determine what assessment is appropriate to meet your needs, discuss goals and objectives for completing the assessment, and review the results with you. We also sometimes offer workshops in which you can receive a Sigi3 account and login information.
What types of jobs can I post?
You may post jobs that pay an hourly wage or salary, as well as internships. If the pay for your position is based solely on commission, request a “Commission Only” form from the Career Center for us to determine if it meets our criteria for listing. The Career Center does not post positions where the student must pay for a product to sell. Typically the Career Center does not post for staffing agencies, but if there is an urgent need, please contact the Career Center to see if it can be posted.
