  • Career Counseling

    Let’s figure out what you want to do and make a plan for getting you there. We can help you with career actions plans, career assessments including the MBTI, resume critiques, mock interviews, and more.

  • Internships

    There’s nothing as valuable as hands-on experience in your major or chosen career. The team at the Career Center can help you prepare to find full- or part-time internships, paid or unpaid, for the semester or the summer.

  • Job Search Resources

    Finding the right job for you takes a knowledge about yourself and what you want to accomplish, and it is also about knowing the right place to look for opportunities. We have a lot of resources to help you get on the right track.

  • Graduate School

    The Career Center can help you determine if graduate school is the right choice for you, if your career goals require extended schooling, what the opportunities and costs associated with that choice will be, and what next steps you should take. The Career Center team can help you look at every angle and make the choice that is best for you.

  • Careers by Major

    What can you do with your major? The Career Center can help you explore different careers that are well suited for someone with your interests and major.

  • Career Pathways

    This invaluable program connects students with alumni who work in an industry of interest to the student. Through this networking opportunity, the student is then connected to additional resources for jobs, internships, advice and other experiences.

The Mount Career Fair

Each year you’ll have the chance to participate in our annual large-scale Career Fair. Bring your resume and dress professionally to spend the day networking and learning about jobs and internships with local and regional employers.
