  • Career Counseling & Job Search Resources

    Finding the right job takes a knowledge about yourself and what you want to accomplish. We can help you figure that out and make a plan for getting you there. With career actions plans, career assessments, resume critiques, mock interviews, job search resources and more, you'll have the skills and tools you need to work toward a great start to your career.

  • 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.

  • 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 afternoon networking and learning about jobs and internships with local and regional employers.
