Service learning is similar to a co-op or internship in that students interact with an external constituency, but the focus is specifically around public or community service, placing an emphasis on civic responsibility and social change. A major element of the student’s academic work involves reflection and reporting of their experiences.
Career Services, located in the Center for Student Success on the lower level of the Student Center, provides extensive resources. The Career Services wing of the CSS offers, among other things, individual career advising, resume help, interview coaching, and group career workshops. Full- and part-time jobs are also distributed to students and alumni on a regular basis electronically through our e-job newsletters.
The mission of Career Services is provide students with help and information that will assist them in securing suitable employment both before and after graduation. The office helps students develop the skills necessary to pursue career opportunities competitively and successfully. Annual programs include several job fairs, networking events, and an Accounting Honors Employment Program. Workshops and seminars are hosted by Career Services staff and occasionally by outside subject area experts. The majority of the hundreds of individual appointments scheduled yearly focus on resume preparation, interview coaching, and general advice about job search planning and strategies.
