Career Development Center

What career is right for me?

If you haven’t figured that out yet, you’re not alone. That’s why we’re here. The AUM Career Development Center’s mission is to educate, empower and create opportunities for AUM students and alumni to achieve individual professional success. 

It all starts when you visit our office in the Taylor Center. We can guide you toward internships or co-op experience since employers love to hire graduates with work experience. We’ll take you through a proven process to assess and  explore your career options. We also help students find on-campus, part-time jobs through our Working Warhawks program. And much more!

Disability Services FAQ
Career-Development-Center01

How do you choose a major and identify your career field?

As we get older, our knowledge of career options should grow, but the career decision-making process is still the same. It involves asking, Who am I? What is important to me? How do I use this information to make an informed career decision?

Are you an AUM alumnus needing career assistance?

All career development services available to current students are also available to AUM alumni. Plus, we look for alumni to assist current students with their career development, including:

  • Facilitating career readiness programs
  • Mentoring current students in the career process
  • Job shadowing or internship opportunities

Please contact the Career Development Center today.

Disability Services FAQ

What career myths are holding you back?

Is there just one career that’s best for you? Will you only have one career during your lifetime? Will my degree automatically lead to employment? Start separating fact from fiction as it relates to your career.

Are you an employer needing ambitious, job-ready candidates? #HireAWarhawk

Our mission is to connect you with students and graduates who have the skills and the drive you need to make your business thrive. We can link you with job candidates through job fairs and expos, recruitment events and career readiness programs. Please contact us.

Process

Assess

Are you an analytical problem-solver or are you a creative type? Are you a Type A personality or an introvert? Sure, we’ll ask a lot of questions, but we’ll do a lot of listening. Your search for a fulfilling career begins with knowing yourself. Identify your interests, skills and values and create SMART goals (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, time-bound) for your future. Make decisions about your major.

Explore

What can you do with your major? We’ll help you research and select career options that align with your talents, interests and goals. You’ll have an opportunity to observe professionals in the workplace as you develop your own Career Action Plan.

Prepare

It’s time to work your plan by gaining experience through involvement and internships. Build your portfolio and sharpen the skills that will give you the edge in competing for jobs after graduation.

Engage

It’s time to put it all together, to apply what you’ve learned in those earlier stages and launch your job search strategy. Refine your resume, build out your LinkedIn profile, network, research potential employers and participate in mock interviews so you’ll be ready for the real thing.

We don’t think of ourselves as a “job center,” but a “knowledge center.”

We’ll teach you and inspire you, and you’ll do the rest. You’ve got this.
