Mission of the Center for Career and Professional Development

The mission of the Center for Career and Professional Development is to assist students with making informed career decisions using its diverse and comprehensive services. The use of these services and interactions with the staff could lead to successful internships and/or employment. The Center for Career and Professional Development also reinforces the soft skills of interpersonal communications, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity which are vital to be successful in any career.

The Center for Career and Professional Development helps with career portfolio building, resume writing, interview skill development, grooming, networking skills, and effective job search training. This is accomplished through one-on-one meetings, group sessions, and in-class workshops and presentations, and is facilitated through the use of handouts, audio and/or visual teaching aids, and online tools.
