Liberal Arts Career Development
Liberal Arts Career Development (LACD) provides resources for all Liberal Arts students. Included are career coaching, including choosing a career path, resume, cover letter, portfolio development and more; the Career Wiki; job, internship, and professional experience postings; graduate and professional school information; career seminars; classroom presentations; walk-in services; tutorial handouts; online clinics; and interactive interviewing software. All resources are provided to assist Liberal Arts students with their professional and career goals.
In addition, the director offers two career development courses. Internship Development Strategies (GS 315) is a one credit hour, eight week course for sophomores and juniors. This course introduces students to the necessary steps in making them more marketable in the future. Resume writing, cover letter writing, mock interviewing and job shadowing are assignments. The Senior Job Search Seminar (GS 415) is a 2 credit course designed to put graduating seniors into an intensive job search with assignments aimed at landing full-time employment. Other resources include Liberal Arts alumni career path and salary information; Career Expo - a Career and Internship Fair; Advance Yourself – a Graduate & Professional School Seminar; and Lessons From the Ladder – events that highlight the respective majors of a department and career paths for those pursing said majors. The LACD also provides students a strong interface with the Center for Career Opportunities (CCO) through technology connections and well-established relationships with that unit. Because LACD does not offer placement programs, students are referred to the CCO for placement services.
Liberal Arts Career Development (LACD) is located in room 1114 of Beering Hall. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Additional information is available at the website.
