Career assessments are a great starting step for career explorers, job seekers, and students at all stages of the career exploration process. Career Services offers several free and fee-based assessments to help you discover yourself and your career options.
Career Decision-Making Difficulties Questionnaire (CDDQ) is an independent online assessment that locates career decision-making difficulties and recommends ways to overcome them.
Emotional Intelligence (Body Language) assesses your ability to correctly perceive and interpret facial expressions. Takes approximately 10 minutes and consists of 20 questions.
LinkedIn Learning offers video-based courses by industry experts in software, creative, and business skills. Achieve your personal and professional goals with access to thousands of courses.
To help support the PACE initiative, we have created a Career Guides Collection. The Collection is a compilation of books which discuss career choices, resume tips, how to hunt for jobs, interview skills, and other options which can help you decide where to go from here. Feel free to come in and use the collection whenever you need to. To find out what titles we have you can view the “Career Guides Collection”.
The job interview is a mutual exchange of information. Think of the interview not as an interrogation but as a two-way conversation during which you and the employer determine whether you meet each other's needs. Meet with Career Services for a Mock Interview
The Big Interview isn't just a training course. You'll also get hands-on practice with mock interviews tailored to your specific major or area of interest.
Handshake is our online jobs database. Students and Alumni can search for internships and jobs (on-campus, part-time, or full-time) or learn more about our events and career fairs. Employers can post positions and engage with our Bobcat talent on campus.
