Here are just a few of our career resources and services available right now:

The Community Internships Program

Many companies use Internships as a means of filling entry-level roles with students who have already been trained and are ready to engage as a valuable employee. Internships are also a means of contributing to the professional development of students. The Office of Career and Calling has designed the Community Internship Program for both of these purposes. We have put processes in place to ensure that students are prepared and confident when engaging employers...

Employers are invited to engage Huskies in the following ways...

The Office of Career and Calling offers career counseling, career development, and comprehensive programming each semester to prepare students to enter the world of work and community service. We provide a range of services to employers which include on-line job postings, internship placement, resume referrals, career fairs, on-campus interviews, information sessions and more.
