Career Services’ mission is to: • Provide information and assistance to students and alumni for making internship, education, and career-related decisions. • Assist students and alumni with acquiring skills needed to implement those decisions. • Connect students and alumni to career-enhancing opportunities. To accomplish this mission, Career Services is dedicated to helping students brainstorm about future plans that can range from internships or apprenticeships, study abroad, job shadowing, scholarships and fellowships, graduate school, and part-time and full-time jobs. We do this through individual meetings, workshops, information sessions, newsletters, our own Facebook and LinkedIn groups, on-campus recruiters, the Ariel Internship program, and our student information management system, Agora. Agora is a powerful tool for students to use for job searching, connecting with alumni mentors and accessing career related resources online, 24/7. To get started, go to: and follow the directions to complete your profile. Your profile will then be sent to Career Services for activation. Once your account is activated you can browse through the Resources Library, look at part-time and full-time jobs that jobs have been posted by local, regional and national employees, and seek alumni who have agreed to be mentors for current students. If you are looking for a part-time, short-term job this fall, Agora is an essential resource. All of these resources, however, are worthless if students don’t take advantage of them. Visit the Career Services office to get acquainted with the staff, so we can begin to know your interests and aspirations. Attend the information sessions and workshops and learn how to present yourself and your skills to employers, graduate schools, and potential mentors. Complete your Agora profile and post your resume so you will be ready to apply for jobs that are posted throughout the year. Let Career Services assist you in taking the ideas and questions you are formulating in the classroom and turn them into a plan for your future. 1
