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.
