Career & Professional Development
The staff of the Career Development Center conducts workshops on resume preparation and letter writing, and arranges individual appointments where the student is assisted in critiquing the resume and letter. Following this process, workshops are offered on interviewing techniques, utilization of the career library, job search techniques, job trips, and decision making. Students may schedule videotaped practice interviews with one of the Center's staff members. Two career fairs are held on campus each year, attracting over 100 small and large firms looking for Clarkson graduates.
