Center for Career and Professional Development

“Employers today really value candidates who can solve problems, think creatively, work in teams and communicate well. And quite frequently, nearly all of the time, employers are telling us that our students possess all of those qualities.” Ryan Brechbill, Director of the Center for Career and Professional Development

The CCPD empowers students to navigate the self-discovery process and integrate their curricular and co-curricular experiences by providing comprehensive resources and professional development opportunities that promote career development as a lifelong process.

The Five Cards: Internships and Professional Experiences

Through internships and professional experiences learning becomes deeper, more meaningful, and ultimately more useful because students are putting theory into practice. These opportunities expose students to the reality of the work place and are integral in helping them prepare for the transition from student to professional.
