Mission Statement:
The Lazarus Center for Career Development prepares students for meaningful undergraduate and post-graduate opportunities, and helps them to develop career decision-making skills to use during college and throughout life.  We provide individualized advising and access to extensive industry programs, career resources, jobs and internships, alumnae networking, graduate school information, recruiting, and career fairs.  We believe each student is unique; we strive to help all students recognize and apply their individual potential.

About Career Advising:
Effective career development and planning is an individualized process, and our advisors are flexible to meet your needs. Advising could include helping you think about majors and what you can do with a liberal arts degree, to exploring career fields through site visits with alumnae, to on-campus recruiting, to interview preparation, to graduate school application support and everything in between. Even if you don't know where to start, we're here to help you every step of the way.
