Career Advocate Program

The Career Development Center (CDC) is excited to introduce our Career Advocate Program. A Career Advocate supports students in achieving their career goals by providing them with career resources, tools, and guidance to make informed decisions in their career journey.

This program is a four-part comprehensive training series designed to advance staff and faculty learning on how to apply our Career Success Models, CDC services, and employment preparation resources to help address career-related inquiries from students.

If you are in a student-facing role or supervising student assistants, this program would be a great series to further your learning and equip you in supporting the career development of your students.
