The Hart Career Center's main services to students involve career guidance, internship facilitation, graduate school advising, job search assistance, and a wide variety of career related events are coordinated throughout the year to assist students in these four areas. This page will give you an opportunity to explore the services we offer to students for yourself.
Our library contains many graduate school references on a variety of tests and programs. These materials are available for use during Career Center hours of operation. Our staff is well versed in helping students decide if graduate school is the right choice as well as assisting them in exploring programs that may be of interest and can help students find the career path that fits them best. There are a variety of interest assessments used to help aide in these decisions (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Interest Inventory, STRONG).
In addition to career advising, we manage and organize several different job posting services which include the Career Insider powered by Vault, Environmental Career Opportunities, CareerSearch, the Human Services and Liberal Arts Career Weekly, Graduate Jobs, Internships USA, and more!
