Internship and Career Services (ICS) offers a wide array of resources and tools to help students and alumni obtain their career goals. Students are encouraged to visit the office early in their college experience to meet the staff and to take advantage of the many services available. ICS offers one-on-one career advising appointments to all students and alumni. Typical appointment topics include:
- Resume building and Critiques
- Cover letter guidance
- Practice interviews
- Self assessment resources
- Grad School resources
- Gap year information
- Networking resources and tips
- Internship and job search strategies
- Student employment assistance
ICS also offers the summer eCritique service available Memorial Day through Labor Day. eCritique is a convenient way to receive a resume or cover letter critique via e-mail while away from campus. Simply e-mail your document to firstname.lastname@example.org, and indicate the type of position you are looking to obtain and a job description if possible. Your document will be critiqued and returned to you within three business days.
ICS Career Development Model
Career development is a lifelong process. It's not something that begins two weeks before graduation and ends when you find an internship or a job. It also takes reflection at every step. Learn more about the ICS Career Development Model:
