Career Services

The Career Services Center of Student Services assists undergraduate and graduate students and alumni to develop career goals, plan effective job searches, obtain positions and change careers.

To learn how to effectively showcase knowledge, skills and talents to truly become a successful member of the workforce, students and alumni are encouraged to participate in free career development workshops (Resume Development & Cover Letter Writing and Interviewing & Job Search Skills). Certified Professional Resume Writers (CPRW) are available to review resumes and cover letters to offer suggestions and ensure a proper reflection of education and experience. Career related recruitment events are arranged throughout the academic year to facilitate networking and career awareness.

Internships and part-time and full-time job opportunities are posted online at DowLink and maintained in binders in the Career Services office. Students and alumni are encouraged to post their resume on DowLink for approval and search for available positions.

Employers are invited to post jobs and internship opportunities via DowLink and attend career related events to meet with Dowling students and alumni.
