I think one of the best services that Career Planning & Development offers are the practice interviews. Interviewing can be tough and the more times you can practice, the more comfortable you will feel!

Feel free to look at my LinkedIn as an example for yours.

Career Planning and Development helps students with some of the 
most crucial aspects of college such as internships and finding employment after college. I'm so happy to have the opportunity to work here because of the connections CP&D has helped me make both on and off campus.

Senior: Advertising & Public Relations

I love working at CP&D because we get to see students discover what they want to do first hand. It is a very exciting experience! My favorite service we offer are the personality and interest assessments. I took them my freshmen year and they really helped me to know myself better. Everyone should take them at some point!

Junior: Chemistry & Biology

Working at CPD is great because the people are awesome and so are the tools available! It's extremely beneficial that I have an instant connection to professional tips and advice. 

A career lasts a lifetime so it's important to find your interests and harness them into a job.  I would have never realized the full span of all the services offered to me as a student if I didn't work here and I know that I have already learned so much about the professional world.
