Career Exploration and Development Helps Students Own Their Future
Career Exploration and Development has long helped with student employment and preparing for a post-graduation career. The office has now opened in a newly renovated space in the Schwartz Center with two other co-located departments: Academics Engagement and Degree Completion, and Experiential Education and Civic Engagement.
This triad of departments forms the Academic, Civic and Career Engagement Center. The staff want to work with students throughout their time at Kent State, helping them discover the career that’s right for them and creating a pathway to get there.
Students will find assistance with campus employment, connecting interests and skills to careers and majors, polishing a résumé, creating a LinkedIn profile, practicing interviewing and finding internships and co-ops. They also will find new events and services, such as meetups, microinternships and a career closet to help discover their purpose and prepare for a career.
Encourage the students you know to visit Career Exploration and Development early and often!
