Our purpose is preparing you to live out yours.
You want to make an impact — and your future career will help you do it.
But getting from graduation to employment in your field often takes more than just a great education.
It takes networking. And experience.
At Liberty’s Career Center, we’re committed to partnering with you to give you all the tools, resources, and experience you’ll need to land the job you want — so you can make the impact you’ve dreamed of.

Your network is your people. They orbit the career circles you want to be in and share relevant ideas, information, and contacts with you.
Networking involves adding people to your own personal network and interacting with them to make and keep connections. Volunteer, attend career fairs, and plug in to networking websites to start making these connections.
Handshake is an online tool used by over 250,000 employers to showcase internship and job opportunities. Liberty launched this tool in October 2018, and over 8,000 LU students and alumni are already connecting with more than 4,500 approved employers through it.
Liberty University Fellowships
Our Washington and New York Fellowships make up Christ-centered, semester-long internship programs hosted by Liberty University, which offer students of all majors the unique opportunity to live and work in our nation’s capital or New York City.
The Washington Fellowship

This program has placed students in organizations such as the National Park Service, American Psychological Association, Metro Police Department, and U.S. Congress.
The New York City Fellowship
Your dream of making it in the Big Apple could become a reality with the New York City Fellowship.
Experience the thrill of the city while living in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper East Side and participating in a competitive internship that will give you a professional edge.
This program has placed students in organizations such as Ralph Lauren, Reclaim NY, Bloomingdale’s, and Fox News.
Student making connections at one of Liberty’s career fairs
Career fairs bring big companies directly to you — organizations like Disney, Chick-fil-A, Fox News, and the U.S. Secret Service. A variety of career fairs are offered throughout each semester in the Montview Student Union.
For a complete list of upcoming career fairs, visit our office in Montview Student Union or online at Liberty.edu/CareerEvents.
“As a growing, but still relatively small business, it’s important to feel confident in both the aptitude and character of the people we bring in. The Liberty graduates we have hired thus far have exceeded expectations.”

You’re going to be set up for a successful career after (and sometimes even before) graduation. You’ll have access to tons of resources to help you succeed in your career search from finding the right major to preparing for the job search and interview process. Reach out to a career coach – they’re available to guide you through each step of the process.
Take a look at some of the ways you’ll be prepared for your future:
The Career Center has an online résumé and cover letter critique service to provide you with feedback. For additional customization tips for specific career fields and employers, schedule an appointment to speak to a career coach.
Be prepared for your interview with strategy ideas and tips on impressing your potential employer. Learn how to create your “elevator pitch” to present yourself with confidence, as well as additional steps to take after the interview to ensure you are remembered after you leave the building.
“I think people locally will be really amazed with the talent they see come out of Liberty and how its rising entrepreneurs can be a strong source of job creation over time.”
