The Center for Career Services and Cooperative Education provides students and alumni with the opportunity to advance their career development through a variety of services, including the following:

Career Counseling:           

        • This service helps undeclared students and alumni identify their likes and dislikes in relation to majors and careers.  (If a student has declared a major, h/she will receive career advisement through the school or college Office of Career Services.) 
        • Interest testing is available through the Center to help students learn more about how their interests relate to majors and careers.  Students will meet with a career counselor to discuss test results and recommend next steps.

On-campus Jobs:           

  • All on-campus jobs are listed on the Center's website in Career Directions, our web-based job listing system (as are full time positions). 
  • Students interested in getting an on-campus job should register through Career Directions. Faculty and Staff who would like to post available on-campus positions should also register through Career Directions.
  • See for registration information. Faculty will select On-Campus Employer on the left side of the page to register.


Cooperative Education (Co-op):           

  • A co-op is a credit bearing, work-based learning opportunity created to assist students in exploring how classroom learning applies to the workplace. 
  • Co-op students are supervised by a Career Advisor from their college or school, a faculty member in their department, as well as by the employer, and receive a grade and course credit for the experience.
