"Career Services is a place where students can not only get help with landing their first job after graduation, but also receive assistance with deciding on a major and a career path."

 

David Gerling, Ph.D.
Professor of Spanish
College of Humanities and Social Sciences


"Career Services must be an integral part of the university experience of our students, even to the extent that it should be required of all students to be assessed and given information about their professional inclinations. Many students have no one at home to counsel them regarding their future and many times their friends give them incorrect information regarding the choice of a profession. Additionally, many begin majors that at best should be minors. I really think that the University Career Services can help them answer the following vital question regarding a future profession: What is it that would make me want to get out of bed in the morning and at the same time allow me to provide for my basic material needs?

This can be a big advantage for the student in both the application phase and the interview phase of finding the right job to launch their new career.
