Job Search Resources
The Career Center is here to help you find your academic/career path and equip you
to successfully execute the transition from student to professional.
On-campus jobs are available for all students; students who qualify for work study and those who do
not. A host of workshops such as customer service training (CASA) and the Eagle Edge program are
available to help students successfully navigate their employment experience. All available
on-campus student positions can be found through the Hanshake website. In addition, at the
beginning of each semester, the Career Center hosts a part-time job fair featuring on- and
off-campus job opportunities.
