Office of Career and Calling

The Office of Career and Calling at Houston Baptist University is the centralized career resource for all majors including alumni. We prepare all of our students for the World of Business beginning in the very first year of college and the career coaching and developing of our students continues throughout the undergraduate years into graduate school and beyond as HBU alumni professionals are encouraged to come back home for career assistance and retooling. Here are just a few of our career resources and services available right now:
