Career development is an ongoing process of self-discovery. The Greene Center for Career Education and Connections is here to partner with students on their journey whether you’re exploring career and major options, looking for experiences to help build your skills and resume, or need help strategizing how to reach whatever your goals may be.
We hope that as early as your first year on-campus, you connect with our staff to talk about where you are in your career development, consider where you might like to go, and how we can help you along the way. Over the course of your degree program we will partner with you as you begin to: Know Yourself, Discover Your Potential, Build Career Competencies, Create a Personal Brand and Establish a Network.
The following are tips to help students get started:
- Join Handshake, create your profile, and complete your career interests (found under your name tab). This opportunity recommendation tool grows with you over the course of your four years and allows you to schedule 1:1 advising appointments in the Greene Center, learn about upcoming events, and access jobs and internship opportunities.
- Get to know yourself and become more familiar with your skills, interests, and values through a variety of career assessment options available through our Exploratory Career Community.
- Explore all of the Career Communities. These communities are a way to connect students and alumni to information, resources, and people in order to explore interests. Career communities encourage exploration by exposing students to related industries, professions, resources, new and advice.
- Stop by the Greene Center during drop-in hours and speak with a Peer Career Advisor (PCA) – no appointment necessary!
- Schedule an appointment with a Career Advisor who can support you in your career and graduate school journey.
What is Career Advising?
Advisors in the The Greene Center are available to help you explore your options. They can ask questions to get you thinking and exploring, offer ideas on how to gain experience, tips on how to tell your story through resumes, interviews and other documents, and assist you in making connections to alumni, industry leaders, faculty, graduate programs and employers.
Advisors are available to meet with you virtually (and in-person during the academic semester) Monday – Friday, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m, with additional limited evening hours. To schedule an appointment with one of our Advisors:
- Login to Handshake
- Select “Career Center” from the top navigation
- Select “Appointments” from the menu
- Select the Advisor you would like to meet with and schedule a time that works for you!
The Greene Center also offers drop-in hours during the academic semester. Drop-ins are a great way for you to get quick advice and answer to questions without having to schedule an appointment. Spring 2022 drop-ins will be available Monday and Wednesday 12-3 and Fridays 12-4.
