Annual events

The PCRC's goal is to provide a bridge between employers and students/alumni.  The specific goal is to provide a proper space (on-campus/virtually) that allows students/alumni the ability to make important connections and gain a greater awareness of the employment opportunities that exist in our region and beyond. Use these opportunities to engage with a variety of employers to learn about opportunities that may be a great fit for you and your interests.  

Each semester, the Professional Career-Readiness Center brings a variety of employers to campus to network with and offer job opportunities to current students and alumni. If you are unable to attend a recruitment event, contact our office and we will provide you with the information so you can still apply for any open positions.

The PCRC provides Career-Readiness Workshops for students and alumni throughout the year.  Two workshops that occur on a monthly basis are the Handshake/Careers on Point Workshop and the Get Paid/Earn Credit Workshop.  The PCRC also partners with other Schools/Departments to facilitate workshops on a wide-range of Career-Readiness Topics.  All majors welcome.

If you have an idea for a workshop, or would like a PCRC staff member to connect with your department, your class, or your club/organization, please let us know.
