The Experiential Learning and Career Development Center provides a variety of services, programs, special events, and workshops to assist students with career development and post-graduation planning. Individual career counseling and interest assessment is available by appointment.

To help students with career planning, selecting a concentration, and conducting a career search, the Center has information relating to the following topics: internship opportunities, full-time/part-time jobs, seasonal jobs, and graduate and professional school offerings. An extensive Career Resource Library houses career-related books, periodicals, videos, and company literature.

The Center also offers a variety of career and graduate school related programs and workshops on topics such as resume and cover letter writing, interviewing skills, how to choose a concentration, job searching, as well as alumni panel discussions relating to various career fields. In the fall semester, a Graduate School Fair is held, and in the spring, the Horizons Job and Internship Fair is held. Freshmen, sophomores, and Alpha students may choose to take SPI 125 Career Decision Making, a course designed to help students choose a concentration and explore potential career paths through self exploration, information gathering, and reality testing.

Students may also house a Credential File in the Center, and seniors may participate in the Resume Referral Service.

The Experiential Learning and Career Development Center urges students to begin their concentration and career planning process in the first year. For more information, visit the Experiential Learning and Career Development Center web page or call 610-921-7630.
