The Career Connections Center strives to serve students, an increasingly diverse and competitive job market. Career Connections wants to help students maximize their college experience to create a unique combination of education, experience and skills for success in the ever-changing world of work.  We strongly encourage all students to connect with their Career Consultant to define and refine their career goals. From choosing a major to getting career-related experience, to creating a job search or graduate school plan, a Career Consultant can guide students every step of the way.

  • Attend a workshop or employer connection event to get started on developing career readiness. Check out our calendar of events

Career Connections works in collaboration with Academic Advising. While we can help students decide what major best suits their interests and skills, students need to meet with an Academic Advisor to declare or change their major.
