Learn more about Career Services:
Career Services encourages, supports and advances career and professional development for current students through the acquisition of knowledge, practice of skills, and reflection on experience.

Liberal Arts Education - We value providing individual career coaching as well as educational opportunities for current students to market their integrated learning, personal and social responsibility, and intellectual and practical skills.
Customer Service – We provide the highest level of customer service for our constituents (students, faculty, employers, and alumni) through partnerships that assist in meeting their unique goals and objectives. We also embrace the FISH! philosophy in providing services, events, and information to our constituents.
Be There is being emotionally present for people. It’s a powerful message of respect that improves communication and strengthens relationships.
Play taps into your natural way of being creative, enthusiastic and having fun. Play is the spirit that drives the curious mind, as in “Let’s play with that idea!” It’s a mindset you can bring to everything you do.
Make Their Day is finding simple ways to serve or delight people in a meaningful, memorable way. It’s about contributing to someone else’s life, not because you want something out of it, but because that’s the person you want to be.
Choose Your Attitude means taking responsibility for how you respond to what life throws at you. Once you are aware that your choice impacts everyone around you, you can ask yourself, “Is my attitude helping my team or my customers? Is it helping me to be the person I want to be?”
Through The FISH! Philosophy, we build stronger relationships with staff members, the customers we serve, and the students we teach.
