Career Resources

Students are more likely to have better career outcomes after graduation when they interact with career services and meet with a career coach. Here are some ways in which our STEM Career Coach can support you on your career exploration and development journey:

  • Listen to your concerns and answer any questions you may have about careers, resumes, job search etc…
  • Administer and interpret a career assessment called the FOCUS2
  • Discuss career pathways within chosen major
  • Provide templates for and assist in updating your resume, cover letters, personal statements, and more
  • Help students build Handshake and LinkedIn profiles to match their resume
  • Refer students to other support services and external career resources
  • Identify volunteer, service, and research opportunities
  • Provide you with tips and a walkthrough of your job/internship search
  • Assist pre-med students through the medical school application process
  • Give insider tips on the latest job market trends
  • Practice interview and networking skills
  • Refer students to receive professional attire

Don’t wait until Senior year to meet with career services though! You can take small actionable steps beginning Freshman year. Remember this: an investment in higher education, is an investment in your career – start sooner, than later.
