The Placement Office provides students and graduates with employment information, arranges on-campus interviews with employers, and makes referrals for full-time, summer, and part-time jobs. Students may also receive assistance with interview skills and with letter and resume preparation.
Prospective graduates are urged to register with the Placement Office one semester prior to graduation in order to take full advantage of job interview opportunities. Once a student is registered, an individual credential file is established, containing the students' resume, references, and transcript. Alumni who seek job referral services are required to register with the Placement Office annually and submit an updated resume and references.
Students are encouraged to pursue the interview process in a professional manner. Campus interviewing may be restricted for students who fail to keep interview appointments without proper cancellation.
The Placement Office maintains employment contacts with industries, school systems, and local, state and federal agencies. Services include local, state and regional job vacancy announcements, as well as the identification of potential employers. Placement practices conform with both the letter and the spirit of federal and state laws and regulations regarding nondiscrimination in the campus recruiting program and in all services provided by the Placement Office.
The Placement Office also conducts follow-up surveys of graduates. The data is compiled and distributed to the administration and faculty. Students may review the follow-up study upon request.
