Welcome to CES!

While the staff at Career and Employment Services (CES) can’t help you with your Spanish homework or your upcoming biology quiz, they can help you shed that old backpack someday.  Career searching and skill building may be new to you, but it’s a way of life for the staff at CES. 
CES offers assistance to students of all ages as they transition from college to career, yet many students wait until the last minute to actually visit CES.  Whether you’re looking for a part-time job to help pay the bills or preparing for you first job after graduation, CES has a wide variety of valuable resources to help you succeed.  Instead of waiting until you’re ready to graduate, start utilizing all of the services CES has to offer.
