Career Coaches

Career Coaches are the best resource that the Advising and Career Development Center (ACDC) has to offer!  They go above and beyond to individualize solutions for each student and alumnus.  By reaching out to a Career Coach, you will build a great relationship with a professional who cares about your success and can help you map out your professional journey.

Career Coaches assist in many different areas, including:

  • General major and career-related coaching
  • Resume and cover letter reviews
  • Practice interviews
  • Information and preparation for career fairs
  • Internship assistance
  • Graduate school guidance
  • Professionalism training
  • Personal branding

When meeting with a Career Coach, you can expect to engage in a confidential, friendly, and motivating personal exchange in a 30-minute appointment.  Meet our staff!
