Career and Professional Development Welcomes You Back!

Dear Hilltoppers,


As we start the spring term, we wanted to highlight some of the new programs available to you through Career and Professional Development.


Our second Career Accelerator class will launch soon. To be best prepared to apply for an internship or full-time job, students are encouraged to participate in this 3-week online seminar. Registrations for the spring program will be announced soon.


General elective internship credit may now be earned by registering your approved internship experience through our office. Students seeking credit for a spring or summer internship outside of their major may find this a great alternative to completing an internship for experience only.


We have launched the new Skype Interview space where you may conduct online interviews with employers in a professional and controlled setting. In addition to providing a professional interview space, we can help you prepare for the unique experience of an online interview.


Of course our regular programs are in full swing as well. We can help you discover your career interests, pursue an internship opportunity, develop a LinkedIn profile, or find full-time employment for after graduation. Watch this space each Monday as the Career Insider highlights all of the opportunities and support services from CAPD this term.


Best of luck this semester,


Raymond Rogers, Director
