Welcome to the Center for Career and Professional Development, your centralized career planning and development office. We are here to help you prepare and ultimately find the career that is the right fit for you. The CCPD can play a significant role the employment offer rates of our students and alumni. Employers select schools with strong office staff and student interaction for recruiting opportunities, and are more likely to extend offers to students and alumni from those institutions. On average, job offers are made to 40% of students interviewed, while offers climb to 72% to students at schools identified to have strong career service centers.

A lot has changed in the employment world in the past several years. This means that we can no longer “wing it” or wait until your senior year to prepare for the transition from college to career. The CCPD is your centralized career planning and development office here to help you prepare and ultimately find the career that is the right fit for you. Best of all? Our services are completely free to all incoming and current students, and alumni!

Disability Services

The Center for Career and Professional Development is committed to providing support for all students. If you have a documented disability and need accommodations, inform us at the time you schedule your appointment so we can make any arrangements necessary. Accommodations can only be arranged once a request has been received by the CCPD team. If you are a student who needs an accommodation to attend or participate in one of our career events, you are encouraged to complete our online form to make your request. To the greatest extent possible, the CCPD will observe confidentiality with respect to any request for accommodation.

Students who feel they have not been accommodated appropriately can submit an appeal to the director of disability services. View university policy 6.6 for information on the appeal procedure.
