Welcome & Mission Statement

Introduction to Career Planning & Development

Drury University's Career Planning & Development office is an evolving and dynamic resource for students and alumni. We are a centralized center dedicated to providing career development support and information. Career development is facilitated through the theoretical framework of career counseling and with a range of career exploration resources including interest, personality, and skills assessments, individual and group career counseling, computerized guidance and information systems, the Internet, and the career library. Workshops are offered throughout the academic year on Self-Assessment, Resume Writing, Job Search Strategies and Interviewing Skills. Today's technology is fully utilized to provide the best and most effective assistance to Drury students and alumni. To ensure that our students have the greatest advantage in their chosen field, we provide resume preparation assistance, internship opportunities, a career database for resume and credential referral, career fairs, on-campus interviewing opportunities, alumni mentoring and networking, and the services offered on this website. Our overriding goal at Career Planning & Development is to integrate individual career development within the academic environment and to provide a connection to the world of work. Your interest and involvement in Career Planning and Development, your career development resource, is encouraged and welcome. We look forward to meeting you and working with you.

Mission: Educate students and alumni of Drury University on career development issues and assist them in achieving productive and fulfilling careers through appropriate campus and community outreach and programming.
