Liberal Arts Career Team
Liberal Arts encompasses a large number of students with majors that lead to a wide variety of career options. Each year we see our graduates choose almost equally between beginning full-time employment or starting graduate school. Whatever your career goal is, our team can assist you in creating a plan to achieve it. Each Career Success Professional of our team has a Liberal Arts background and collectively, we have worked in a variety of roles with for-profit and non-profit organizations. We can help you articulate how your studies and experiences will be beneficial in a career.
Because we understand the wide range of careers that interest our students, we focus on recruiting employers to hire our students based on their unique skills. These employers connect with our students through Handshake with internship and job postings, information sessions and even campus-wide career fairs.
Not only do we meet with students one-on-one and connect students with the employers they’re interested in, but we also offer a 1 hour, for-credit class centered around professional development (PRD 2101). Students who take this class learn how to properly articulate their value in a resume, how to effectively search for jobs, network, interview and then negotiate the offer. The most fun part about this class for us is seeing that many of our students end up with multiple internship and/or job offers at the end of the semester.
Reach out to us for any of the following:
- Career discovery/exploration
- Internship or job search
- Résumé/CV review
- Cover letter advice
- Mock interview for job or graduate/professional school
- Salary negotiation strategies
- Networking strategies/how to use LinkedIn
We have a vast array of resources to support our work and encourage you to take advantage of:
