Office of Career Services

Peer career coaches

Peer Career CoachesThe Office of Career Services has new additions to the staff: our Peer Career Coaches (PCC). Our PCCs are supervised by Keyara Stevenson, a career advisor and residence life liaison, and serve diligently for the student body.

The eight PCCs serve as Career Services Ambassadors by increasing the awareness for the Office of Career Services (OCS), its programs, services, and resources, among the student population, faculty, and staff. Our PCCs host weekly virtual resume drop-in sessions via Zoom and résumé critiques via Handshake. The coaches help with marketing OCS services and upcoming events through social media, word of mouth, and student organizations, as well as provide hosting assistance (workshops, information sessions, events, etc.).

Each of our Peer Career Coaches has shown leadership in assisting their peers. They have all utilized our office’s resources prior to becoming Peer Career Coaches, and that's one way they add value to supporting their peers through the process,” Stevenson said. “As their supervisor, I am very happy with this group of students. They are wonderful additions to our office, and I couldn't be happier with their performance.”

FiRst destination survey: what are your career plans?

Spring commencement is coming soon, and the Office of Career Services wants to assist you if you have not secured employment or obtained an offer yet.Business entertainment students

Graduating seniors are required to complete the First Destination Survey (FDS) prior to graduation. In this survey, seniors are asked to provide their plans after graduation whether it be employment, continuing education, or even the military.

It is important for all graduating seniors to complete the survey because the data helps to secure funding, scholarships, and employer partnerships. It also increases employer recruitment efforts. The Office of Career Services (OCS) maintains contact with graduates and keeps them informed about various career opportunities if they have not secured any career plan.

The FDS information is confidential and not shared openly with third parties or used to solicit money. If graduating seniors complete their FDS by a given deadline, they will be eligible for a gift from OCS. A deadline date will be given through email to prospective graduates.
