Center For Career Development

Update Regarding COVID-19 Virus and Career Development:

Beginning March 16th, 2020, the Center for Career Development will operate on a modified
service delivery model. Please see the category below that best fits your inquiry.

Students: Tech students wanting to make an appointment for career-related issues can still
make appointments through the Handshake system as normal by visiting the link provided
below. For the immediate future, appointments will be conducted over the phone or
via Zoom communication.


For simple resume critiques you can email your resume to [email protected] We can usually have the resume back to you in less than 24 hours from submission.

Handshake: Tech students using Handshake to find employment opportunities should see little
to no difference while we are on the modified delivery model. Employers will still
place jobs and be able to search resumes. Likewise students will still be able to
apply for jobs as usual.

Employers: Employers wanting to place jobs with Tech can still utilize the Handshake system as
always. Other employer requests can still be done via phone or email. Employers needing
assistance with interviewing Tech students should call us for more specific instructions
concerning date, time, and method. Employers with ongoing recruiting/interviewing
efforts with Tech students should proceed as you normally would.

Career Readiness Programs: All in person Career Readiness Programs scheduled for Spring 2020 are now cancelled.
The Center for Career Development has made it possible to complete already started Career Readiness Certifications by clicking on the link below and following the instructions.
