The Career Development Center, located in Spilman Hall, provides career advice and job placement assistance. Career interest tests and inventories are used to help students determine their vocational preferences and to provide guidance in choosing a major area of study. Career planning is encouraged from Year One at college, with service learning, internships and informational interviewing being part of the process. Job search services include workshops, network building and individual assistance in resume writing, improving interviewing skills, and participation in local and regional job fairs. A comprehensive website containing job and service learning databases and links to current resources, is regularly updated. In addition, the Center publishes a quarterly newsletter profiling student, graduate and faculty activities in various career fields, with one focusing on Education each year.
The Education Department also assists graduates in securing teaching positions by passing along employment opportunities shared by public school systems and other teacher recruiting resources . A bulletin board in the Education Department and electronic messages are used to announce current employment opportunities.
