What employers are saying...
Thank you so much for all that you did to ensure our visit was a success. You really did a fantastic job and made things very easy for (us). The pizza event went off without a hitch thanks to you and your planning.

CU Students are on of a kind. Thankful we get to partner with God-honoring intuitions like Cedarville.
Focus Leadership Institute (Focus on the Family)
[I]t has been a pleasure working with you and your staff at Cedarville. Visiting Cedarville for the last two years has truly been a joy. This is due, in a large part, to your staff's "hands on" approach to interacting with employers.
Please know that both I and my command (Naval Recruiting District Ohio) hold Cedarville University in the highest regard - the quality of your education, your students, and their preparedness for the "real world" is second to none. Keep up the good work!
United States Navy
I’ve traveled to 9 career fairs from the end of January to yesterday, and your students were by far the most engaged in the recruiting process. They were prepared and active participants in finding ways to increase their likelihood of success in navigating the job market. We even had a handful of students who already committed to summer internships ask for us to share tips on making themselves more marketable. They may not have been looking for an opportunity for this summer and too bad for us, but they were thinking ahead and that is all important. Thank you for having us. Keep up the great work.
Office of Ohio Attorney General
We were very much impressed! Everything was wonderful. We were so impressed with your students; well prepared, great questions, excellent communication, eager, professional, appropriately dressed, I can go on and on! The staff was very helpful as well. I really enjoyed the orientation for employers; what a great way to introduce yourselves as an institution and provide an in-depth look at program specifications that mold your students into young professionals.
Nationwide Children's Hospital
Your staff, facilities, and especially candidates were top-shelf, first-rate, outstanding! You thought of everything and it showed, so our thanks to you for inviting us, and I'm calling dibs on our next recruiting trip to your campus. Please let us know how we can better/further liaise with you and thanks again.

What students are saying
I just wanted you to know that you played a vital role in helping me obtain a position at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. I did a two hour phone interview with them last Monday and they offered the job to me on Wednesday. You helped me formulate my thoughts and directed me to appropriately answer various types of questions. THANK YOU!!! You do an excellent job! Keep up the good work.
Thanks for your help on the phone interview that I had last week on Tuesday with the Alexander & Associates from Cincinnati, Ohio. It went very well, I felt like I was prepared for all of the questions that they asked. This would not have been so had I not filled out the worksheet we went over when we met. Every single question they asked me I had already written a response to. I feel like the interview definitely left them with a good impression. I just found out this morning that I did indeed get the internship and will be starting after classes finish.
Electrical Engineering Student
I found out today that I have been offered the internship as well as a paying teaching position at the Children's Theatre! If it wasn't for the help of career services, I would never have been as prepared as I was. Thank you for all that you do for us!
Resume Review & Networking
I just wanted to thank Career Services for preparing me for the interview with Community Health Systems, the nation’s second largest hospital chain. After being hired, the person who interviewed me said it was my research and knowledge of the company which sold me to the company, which I would not have done without your presentation. Most of the questions asked were listed on the handout given which enabled me to be relaxed and confident at the interview. I really appreciate your time!
Thank you so much for taking so much time throughout this school year to assist me in finding an internship. From sculpting my resume to preparing for interviews, your advice has been incredibly beneficial. I’m so blessed with this opportunity at Cardinal Health, and will definitely let you know how it goes!

Thank you for consistently providing students with the tools to reach their dreams!
Thank you for meeting with me and talking through information about the GRE. It was very helpful! All of you in Career Services do a FANTASTIC job at helping us students.

Graduate School Admissions
I am convinced that the assistance that I received through the Career Services department is the reason why I received a job that I recently applied for. My interviewer immediately offered me a job after reviewing my resume, and she was very impressed with the content and presentation of the cover letter and resume. I had a lot of trouble finding a job last summer, but your assistance has made the difference for this summer. Thank you so much! I really appreciate the people and purpose of Career Services.

What alumni are saying
I just wanted to follow up on this and let you know that I have this week accepted an offer from CVS\Caremark for the Sr. Applications Developer position. Thanks very much for helping me to get things started with this process by providing me with a contact. I wasn't getting anywhere prior to that and after I reached out to the person you recommended, things started moving immediately. I really do appreciate the helping hand.
Class of 2005
It's hard to believe that my time at Cedarville University has already concluded. I just wanted to thank you again for the impact that you had on me. I really appreciated how you consistently challenged us to view our careers in an others-centered and Christ-centered way. Thank you for the practical advice about everything from handshakes to resumes.
Class of 2013
In 2009, you, along with the career services office, greatly encouraged and helped me in job hunting and God opened up the door for me to work for a non-profit orphan care ministry in Tennessee. I'm still working and loving my job at Show Hope and wanted to again express my gratitude to you and the career services office for all of your help. Thanks again!!
Class of 2003
I am a 2012 graduate in Environmental Science and I greatly benefited from your emails about possible jobs and internships.

I want to thank you so much for all your help on my resume, it is greatly appreciated… Reading the article in the Inspire was so encouraging, so I thought I would use some of the resources Cedarville offered, and you have been so helpful and beneficial.
Class of 1995
During a faculty meeting, my boss told the school that my resume was perfect and that I had a great cover letter when I applied. So a big thanks to Career Services for helping me with that! ... I appreciate even more the help with grad school applications, resumes, cover letters, and interviews that I got from your office. I’m even thinking about stopping by to take Career Direct again sometime we’re back up in Cedarville. Thank you for all you provide for students and alumni!
