We want to help them find the job that's right for them, which is why our Career Center hosts career fairs, résumé workshops, and mock interviews. Students also achieve career readiness through internships and programs such as the Washington Fellowship. Liberty graduates are sought out by employers because of their work ethic, positive attitude, knowledge, and skills. Alumni have cultivated a commitment to service through charities, missions, and relief organizations. Pictured above is Alison Howard (’11) mentoring a Washington Fellowship student.
