The Center for Career & Professional Development (CCPD) partners with students and alumni to enhance their educational goals, career development and job or internship search as they transition from college to career.

As a student, you'll explore career options, obtain career-related experience, as well as research and find meaningful employment appropriate to your knowledge, abilities, aspirations and interests.

We accomplish our mission by providing students with:

  • Cooperative education and internships.
  • Networking with recruiters through campus interviewing, career fairs, employer information sessions and online career management software.
  • Courses, workshops, seminars, and online career resources for lifelong career management skills.
