Students and Alumni

Students: Explore. Prepare. Connect.

From your first step on campus until you cross the graduation stage, your success is our number one priority. Thinking about life after Lipscomb while you’re buried in books may seem stressful, but we’re here to guide you through the process—from exploring your career options, preparing for life after graduation and making connections in your chosen field.

Explore: Learn about yourself.
Some freshman know exactly what they will do after graduation.  Many will change majors along the way.  Others still may have no idea what their futures hold.  The great thing about college is the opportunity to explore and learn about yourself.  We can help you discover your passion, determine the best major to fit your interests, find an internship, and get involved on campus and in the community.  It’s often the experiences that shape your future—let us help you find your way.

Prepare:  Plan for life after graduation.
You’re ready to graduate. Congratulations!  We know you’re a catch, but are you ready to convince an employer that you’re the best fit for your dream job?  Let us help you write a resume, develop cover letters that shine and practice effective interviewing skills, so you can knock their socks off.

Connect: Build your network.
A degree and a well-written resume aren’t enough anymore—it’s the relationships you build along the way.  You could find a mentor, develop contacts (and experience) through informational interviews or build your professional network at recruiting events.  We can connect you in many ways and put you on the path to a rewarding career.
