Career Center Programs
Career Center Welcome Back
Early in the Fall Semester, the Career Center Staff travels through campus on the President’s golf cart and passes out cool treats to students. This is to help students become familiar with the Career Center Staff and aware of the center’s services.
Accounting Majors Start-Up
This information session prepares junior and senior accounting majors for the upcoming Accounting Evening and participation in the On-Campus Recruitment program. Internships, resume writing, and interviewing techniques are also discussed.
Accounting Evening is an opportunity for students interested in accounting internships and permanent positions to learn about and network with firms that partner with Mount St. Mary’s On-Campus Recruitment program.
This information session focuses on graduate school information: the application process, financial aid, and higher education programs. This event is usually held at Loyola College. Transportation is provided by Mount St. Mary’s.
These sessions give students an opportunity to learn more about an organization, its available positions, the application process, and time to ask questions. Recruiters from the organization host the session and sessions usually last 90 minutes.
The Etiquette Dinner is offered to seniors on first-come, first-serve basis. At this event, you will learn the proper way to eat a 5 course meal. The Career Center hosts this event because employers may invite candidates to dinner as part of the interview process.
The Career Center invites government agencies to conduct information sessions on campus. These sessions provide information on internships and full-time opportunities as well as the application process. There is also time for question and answer. Past attending agencies have included the FBI, NSA, NIH, BLS, and the Foreign Service.
