College of Professional Education

Welcome to the College of Professional Education Community!

The Career Connections Center strives to serve students, faculty, alumni, and employers in an increasingly diverse and competitive job market. Throughout the academic year, Career Connections facilitates workshops and seminars on career exploration and job search topics to help students develop solid career readiness skills.

Career Connections works in partnership with the College of Professional Education to serve students who are interested pursuing a career in the helping professions through interactive programs, workshops and employer connection events. Through classroom presentations, workshops and one-on-one appointments, our career consultants work with students to explore opportunities working with children and families, expanding literacy or sharing information through various career paths. Career Connections guides students in maximizing opportunities to gain experience and explore all possible career options that meet their career interests, skills and values.
