Working together for our students 

We are pleased to collaborate with you in helping students with their career decisions and their job and internship searches. The mutual goal of faculty, staff, administration, and Career Services should be the success of our students. By working and collaborating together we can ensure that the transition from student to the world of work is seamless.

Best resources and practices for assisting students

If you have a student or advisee that needs assistance with deciding on a major, information on careers, help in putting a resume or cover letter together, interview assistance/mock interview, or help in job or internship search, please feel free to walk a student over or contact me with student information so that they can be contacted. Schedule a quick tour of our office and short presentation. It's a great way to introduce students to resources which can help with their studies at Mary and their future careers.
