Career Development Center

The Career Development Center (CDC) is located on the first floor of Egan Hall.  The CDC provides information regarding career counseling, internships, cover letters and resume construction, job searches and job interviews, and graduate schools. 

The hub of the CDC is CareerConnect, an on-line career management system.  Available jobs, internships, and other career related activities are posted on CareerConnect.  Students can post their resumes and credentials for review by prospective employers.  Each student is assigned an account and then creates a unique password to access the secure system.

For undecided students or students considering a change of major/minor, the CDC can help you complete assessments to determine what course of study might be best for you.

The CDC also hosts a Career Fair.  This annual event attracts approximately 90 organizations which offer part-time and full-time jobs and internship opportunities.  The Fair is also utilized by freshmen and sophomores as a career exploration tool.

Our Mission

The mission of the Career Development Center, (CDC), is to enrich student learning by helping students integrate academic knowledge, leadership experiences, professional development and active citizenship. The CDC facilitates this through programs and activities that challenge students to explore, investigate and participate in a variety of career related activities that encourage personal, professional and career development.

CDC on the Portal

Information for current students, including documents for internships, resumes, and job searches can be found on our Portal page. The Portal is only available to current students, and you can login for more information.
