Career planning is a process that begins when you enter college and continues throughout your life.

If you are a freshman, it is normal not to know what you want to do for a career. The good news is that our Center for Career and Professional Development at Post is ready to help you.

If you are an upperclassman, perhaps you are thinking about graduate school.  Or if you are a Post University Alum thinking that you need a career change but don’t know where to start.  Our Center for Career and Professional Development at Post is ready to help you too!

The staff in the Center for Career and Professional Development will inspire, guide, prepare, and educate current students as well as alumni on all things related to your career development.
