Center for Professional Success

WELCOME TO THE CENTER FOR PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS!

A RESOURCE FOR COLLEGE OF HUMANITIES & SOCIAL SCIENCES STUDENTS

It is never too early to get engaged! Out-of-classroom experiences are a great way to get a jump start on your professional career. In fact, when deciding between two otherwise equally qualified candidates, employers rank completion of an internship, holding leadership positions, and being involved in extracurricular activities as influential factors in making a hiring decision (Job Outlook Survey, 2018). The CPS can assist you with finding an internship, receiving travel funding for conferences and presentations, mock interviewing, and resume writing. 

The CPS also offers several networking and career development events to help you explore your career options. In partnership with the Office of Career Advancement, we can provide you with access to a variety of internships, career inventories, and career counseling that can help you narrow your interest and focus your professional journey.
