The Career Services Network (CSN) is an integrated system of support services that includes experienced professionals and career peers all committed to supporting student success.  Our main office and Career Exploration Center is located in the Student Services Building. Students can also visit staff members located within colleges to receive support for career exploration, job and internship searches, on-campus employment, graduate and professional school, employer connections, and much more. We can also provide access to alumni mentors, help with interview preparation, and provide access to many career-related resources.

While it may seem far away, it is critical that you begin to prepare as early as possible for your next steps after graduation. Every class, student organization, volunteer, and work experience contributes to your career development. The earlier you recognize the skills and competencies you are building, the better you will be able to tell your unique story to employers or graduate programs when you graduate.
