Career Preparation: Starting Freshman Year

Career Services at any university is the office that helps students find a job. So, while you may be spending time with the "admissions" staff right now, don't forget to check out a university's "emissions" team as well. The staffing, resources, and philosophy of a career services office tell you much about a university's focus on outcomes and student success.


The influence of Career Services at Cedarville University goes far beyond coaching resume and interviewing skills, hosting career fairs, setting up internships, or offering interest and skills testing. The team provides a MyPlan Career Assessment at no charge to new students, then advisors help students develop a four-year completion plan. Regular Jobs4Jackets emails keep employment opportunities “top of mind.” Career Services’ staff regularly present in classes, helping students connect job opportunities with what they are studying in their major.


At Cedarville, Career Services helps students think about their career choice as a calling — the opportunity to use unique God-given talents and abilities to make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ.
