For Students

Academic Planning and Career Development: A Professional Office

The Office of Academic Planning and Career Development offers a wide range of programs, resources, and support to students in identifying and obtaining a career that meets their goals intellectually, financially, and emotionally. Staff counselors provide individual counseling to help students develop career interests and goals, draft résumés and cover letters, formulate job search strategies, and learn interviewing techniques, networking, and other related skills. In addition, the office works closely with our many alumni to foster relationships and provide opportunities for our students.
