The mission of Career Services at Central Penn College is to provide inclusive and diverse career development services and resources that will prepare students and alumni to successfully obtain employment or advancement in their chosen field, or continue their education. The Career Services Department assists students with resume writing, cover letters, mock interviews, job search strategies, and other career-related questions at any time throughout a student’s education as well as after graduation. It hosts several events that enable students to network with employers for internships, part-time jobs, or full-time employment. All services and events provided by Career Services are free of charge, open to all students, and continue to be after graduation.
