Career Development helps students explore their God-given design and vocational interests, shape their story through the development of skills and relevant experiences through working, interning, and volunteering to successfully pursue goals that set themselves apart and share their story to secure meaningful work.

Career Development provides many free tools to help students and alumni pursue their goals. Career coaches are available in-person, via phone, or virtually to walk students and alumni through their career questions step by step.
