"The Baylor University Career Center team has been a key player in the success of Accenture’s recruiting efforts on the campus of Baylor University. The team has aided in smooth transitions between recruiting seasons, and been a voice for Accenture when we could not be on campus. Accenture is very fortunate to have a relationship with such an amazing team who has helped us lead a presence amongst several academic colleges, clubs, organizations and key events". - Kendrick Harris, Accenture
Career Development Classes
One of the most beneficial ways Baylor students are assisted by the Career Center is through the Career Development courses (PRD 2101, BUS 2101, BUS 3101). These courses are designed to prepare students for the work force and allow the Career Center staff to establish strong relationships throughout the semester. In these on-campus, one-credit-hour courses, students will explore their career interests and opportunities, learn about the numerous career resources available, practice career-oriented life skills and get ahead in their career plan long before they graduate.
