We work closely with students and alumni to understand their career goals and provide individualized guidance on how to achieve them.
We view career development as part of the academic process. We help students with key career readiness skills so they’re armed with the tools they need to meet or exceed their goals. We do this by:
The Office of Career and Personal Development cultivates employer partnerships — helping to connect Benedictine candidates with jobs and internships. We maintain close communication with our employer partners to ensure we have a firm understanding of the opportunities these potential employees offer and what qualifications they are seeking for those positions, so we can advise students accordingly.Click here for more information on Employer Services
We collaborate with faculty and staff to equip students with tools that will help them successfully attain the careers they aspire to. We do this by delivering classroom presentations and integrating career learning activities into the curriculum so that students develop skills in career exploration, resume writing, interviewing, networking, marketing themselves, and internship and job searching.To request a classroom presentation on a career topic, please click here to complete our form To see a list of career presentation topics with descriptions, please click here To see a list career readiness assignments you can integrate into your course curriculum, please click here
