Testimonials

"The Career Development Center has been outstanding with my students this year. They teach students how to write an effective résumé and then coordinate practice interviews. Coordinating the practice interviews has also been extremely helpful in building confidence and allowing students to practice their skills in a safe environment."

- Jack Spivey

"The Career Development Center has been a great support to our students in kinesiology. Monica does a presentation on résumé prep and interviewing for my senior seminar class, and then she and Diane complete a practice interview geared toward their intended job or grad school goals. Both the presentation and the interviews are so valuable to them because they are preparing for real-life interviews in the very near future!"

- Ruth Henry
