Career Services


Early, Often, and Forever


At the Career and Leadership Development Center, “Early, often, and forever” is more than a slogan; it's an essential practice in reaching one’s aspirations and potential. We know that the achievement of a satisfying career happens when you start early and try often, and we’ll support you in that process, forever.

A full-time Career Coach is located on the Chillicothe Campus to help prepare students for their job search and connects with employers to arrange both permanent and short-term placements.

Students have the opportunity to take advantage of one-on-one services for career coaching and mock interviews.

Career readiness workshops are held independently each month and are also available as classroom presentations. Workshop topics are:

  • Creating a Perfect Resume
  • Job Search and Interviewing
  • Keys to Networking Success

All career service appointments are scheduled through Handshake, the largest early talent recruiting platform connecting employers, talent, and colleges in one place.
