The Career Center's mission is to assist students in reaching their career goals by integrating liberal education with experience in the marketplace. We educate and empower students to practice lifelong career management skills, make effective career decisions, and achieve professional success.

The Career Center provides a variety of services to assist students and alumni in developing effective career management skills including individual career consulting, workshops and seminars. As part of the on-campus recruiting program, employers provide information sessions to educate and recruit students about their agencies or organizations, participate in mock interview sessions to help prepare students for the world of work and interview students for internships and full-time employment positions. Internship and Job Fairs are held on campus every semester to give students and alumni an opportunity to network with employers and find out about potential internships and employment. The Career Library offers a collection of resources to assist students in making career choices, researching occupational information, and learning job search skills. Through the Career Center, students also have access to the Bison Career Link (BCL), an online recruitment and internship/job search service which gives job seekers updated listings of on-campus jobs, internship opportunities, and part-time and full-time jobs. 

The Career Center offers a robust internship program that enables students to connect a liberal arts education with success in the professional world. Recent internship sites include the Library of Congress, U.S. Department of Defense, NASA, Merrill Lynch, Smithsonian Institution, Discovery Communications, Volkswagen Group of America, National Council on Disabilities (NCD), Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and many more. Students are also able to participate in an array of international internships.
