Whether you know your exact career path or are completely unsure of what you will do after graduation, the Career Services Center can assist you. Meeting with a Career Counselor can help you form educated decisions about your major choice and identify career possibilities through the process of getting to know yourself and the world of work. Career Counselors can also assist with resume and cover letter development, strategies for obtaining an internship or job, practice interviewing, salary negotiation, graduate school decision making and preparation, post-graduate services consideration, and other career concerns.

We do not expect you to have clear goals or decisions made, just come as you are. You may be overwhelmed by choosing a major, exploring your career options, or starting a job/ internship search. Your Career Counselor will work with you to develop and work towards your goals. This process may involve more than one appointment over the course of your time at Marquette; that's not uncommon. We look forward to working with you!
