Welcome to the Career Development Office

The Career Development Office (CDO) offers a full range of resources and services to assist both students and employers in achieving their goals.Our primary mission is to equip students and graduates with the resources and skills to successfully generate and take advantage of professional opportunities.

We also assist employers in identifying and recruiting talented students and alumni to fulfill their employment needs.
