The Career Center provides a number of resources to student veterans to assist in making the transition from a military to a civilian career whether you are enrolling in college for the first time or returning to school to complete a bachelor’s or graduate degree.
Career Center staff will work with you to explore options, whether you want to research careers and internships, hone your job search skills, create resumes, or practice for interviews. And we can address a variety of personal issues that may impact your career. You’re encouraged to work with our staff of professional career counselors, use assessments to help you clarify career and graduate school interests, prepare for graduate or professional school, and explore internships and international opportunities.
Veterans will be able to explore valuable networking opportunities with employers at our Career Fairs, Employer Information Sessions, networking events, and participate in on campus interviews for internship and full time positions.
