Office of Career Services

Career Services is here to help you get ahead! image

You’re smart - that’s how you got here - so you can do many things.

And you probably chose a liberal education because you have a wide array of interests - so you want to do many things. 

That combination creates the “perfect storm” of career possibilities to sort through, and Career Services is here to help.

We teach career-management skills you’ll need your whole life (e.g. resume writing, interviewing, job search strategies). We provide opportunities to explore a variety of occupations and gain experience. And we help you make connections to employers, grad schools and other resources.

Whether you’re an entering student just starting to check things out or a graduating student or alumnus/a ready to tackle a specific search process, our resources empower you to navigate the exciting journey that is your future.
