Each September and February, the Career Center puts on a huge career fair with hundreds of employers, open to all students. Throughout the year, virtual job fairs, on-campus interviews, company info sessions, and smaller recruiting events are held to enhance the job search opportunities.
Prior to each graduation, the Career Center Staff collects the names, relevant data, and outcomes status of every upcoming graduate. The individual data is kept confidential. If a student is striving to obtain his or her next goal (full-time employment, grad school, etc.), the Career Center staff will contact this grad several times a month with job opportunities, advanced level workshops, and more i assistance.
