Center for Career and Calling

The Center for Career and Calling exists to assist students in developing effective career decision-making and employment skills reflective of God’s unique calling on their lives. We accomplish this by helping students through:

  • Identifying one’s talents, skills, values, interests and personality to explore and make informed choices on academic majors and career options.
  • Creating goals and developing a career plan.
  • Facilitating internship, job and/or graduate school searches.
  • Creating resumes, cover letters, and an online personal brand, and preparing for interviews.
  • Networking and providing recruiting opportunities from employers and graduate schools.
