Additional Services
Occupational Graduation Follow-up: Often incoming students have questions about their chosen major. Will this major help me get into the job market?  How much money should I make after graduation?  Each year the Center for Career & Employer Relations conducts surveys with recent grads to find these answers.  This data is shared below.

Workshops
Each year, The Center for Career & Employer Relations holds workshops to help students get ready for the job market.  These free “Marketing Yourself” workshops include topics such as interviewing, resume writing, and the value of networking.  Local financial professionals also provide a series of Financial Awareness workshops.  Check out this semester’s Calendar of Events below.
