The goal of the Career Services is to empower students to become highly marketable professionals, corporate and community leaders, and lifelong learners. Career Services helps to prepare students to make a purposeful transition from the world of college to corporation and community agencies and is made up of three student services units.

Students visit Career Services for resume and cover letter assistance, career advising, career resources, interviewing practice, and access to CareerTrax, the university’s job listing database that lists opportunities for full and part-time employment, internships, and cooperative education.  Career Services hosts many events and provides services for professional development throughout the year, includng job fairs, roundtable events, empoloyer presentations and recruiting on campus, and workshops through its “Backpacks to Briefcases” series.  To stay in touch with everything happening in Career Services, students should log into their CareerTrax account at www.pucjobs.com.  There are many programs associated with Career Services including the On-Campus Recruiting Program, Student Employment, and Leadership Development.
