Career Development Services

The Office of Career Development Services (CDS) provides comprehensive career services for all School of Science undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni. This includes individual appointments, walk-in advising, workshops, and classroom presentations. Our staff can help with each step of the career development process including career exploration, developing professional experience through internships, job shadowing and volunteering, and preparing for graduate school and the world of work. We help students learn to identify and articulate their unique skills and strengths, particularly through creating effective résumés, cover letters, graduate school essays and when preparing for interviewing and networking. Since most students seek higher education in order obtain good career prospects or to advance to graduate or professional school, Career Development Services should be a component of your academic and professional planning.

The Office of Career Development Services is located in the lower level of Taylor Hall, B006D.
