• Virtual Career Center – offering services that range from résumé reviews to mock interviews
Students are invited to make a 30 minute appointment with career counselors, or come in for a 15 minute walk-in session from 1-3 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays on the first floor of DeMoss Hall. The center also hosts specialized career fairs throughout the year that help your student reach a targeted audience of employers. Students are encouraged to attend any or all of these career-specific events.
