Linked to Local and Regional Markets
We keep our ears bent to the marketplace and collect valuable hiring and human resource insight. We’ve built this insight into an extensive database of cooperative relationships with area and regional businesses, ministries and nonprofit organizations. This allows us to provide effective, career-oriented job placement services to our current students and recent graduates. We are happy to help with resumes, cover letters, applications to graduate school, and even self-marketing channels and professional networking.
