Exploring Majors & Career Communities
The Career Center provides tailored services based on industry focused career communities. These career communities supply guidance on preparation steps, experiences, and connections needed to be competitive in the workplace.
Choosing a career community or several career communities presents tailored opportunities to connect academic studies to the world of work. Additionally, being a part of a career community allows for a more personalized career experience through customized newsletters, networking events and more.
