 We are located inside the main entrance of the Musselman Library and are open year-round.

At the Center for Career & Vocation, students and alumni can:

  • Assess their interests, strengths, values, and goals
  • Identify their callings and passions
  • Explore majors and minors and link them to post-graduate goals
  • Connect experiences in the classroom and community with future career opportunities
  • Develop a job/internship search strategy
  • Plan for admission to graduate school or a long-term service program
  • Create a résumé, cover letter or CV of which they can be proud
  • Develop and curate an online portfolio and professional social media presence

Like you, we are focused on your vocational, personal and professional development as a whole person.  We are here to help you find your #PURPLEprofession, as well as to help you identify the ways you can make meaningful and sustained contributions to the world both now and in the future.
