Do I have to wait until my senior year to visit the Career Center?

Can you help me find a job?

The Career Center does not function as an "employment agency," nor does it guarantee employment. Rather, we work with employers who want to provide opportunities to students either through on-campus interviewing or by posting positions. In addition, we actively strive to broaden the exposure of our students to career opportunities.
