We are proud of our Cavaliers and their drive to be successful in the workplace. Career Connections helps connect students, alumni and employers while ensuring that they are career ready before graduation. Students are encouraged to build their network, guided through how to promote themselves and transpire what they are learning in the classroom to what is to come after graduation. As the connector for students and recent alumni, Career Connections assists with connecting future employers to our students, guides them in the articulation of their skills and experiences, and equips them with professional competencies.
