Here to Help—Even after Graduation
Whether you are looking for a job, making a career change, or have career questions, Career Services can help you. The following services are free and available to all our alumni.
You can schedule a one-hour appointment with a career counselor to talk about changing careers, résumé writing, interviewing strategies, exploring graduate schools, and more.
Admittance to all our job fairs is free. Visit Events and Resources for upcoming job fair dates. The list of registered employers will be on Handshake.
Handshake is our free online job board for students and alumni. Handshake allows you to perform a variety of tasks:
- Search for all types of jobs—including part-time and full-time employment—and internships
- Become eligible for campus interviews and résumé referrals
- Track your job search, including job listings for which you have applied

We offer several career assessments to help you learn about your personality, measured interests, and preferences for various work environments. These assessments can help you understand how your interests, skills, and work values relate to different occupations. A meeting with a career counselor will help you determine which assessments and resources are right for you.
If you are anxious about the interviewing process—or you just want to refine your skills—arrange a mock interview, Skype interview, or videotaped mock interview with a career counselor. You will receive valuable feedback that will help you pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses.
We offer a variety of presentations to assist you in considering career choices and jobs in your academic major and to help you sharpen your job-search skills. These presentations are available by request throughout the academic year. Topics include networking, social media, salary negotiation, interviewing, graduate school, and more.
