Planning and Resources
Career Services offers a variety of resources to assist students and alumni in their professional development. From their first day on campus, students are enrolled in a required Career Course that begins the process of developing a strategic plan to reach desired career outcomes. Additional services range from providing guidance and goal setting to helping students gain experience in their chosen professional field while crafting an effective job search strategy. At the present time, part-time certificate students in Washington, D.C. do not have access to Career Services.
