Career preparation at Knox does not begin during the last term senior year, nor does it end with Commencement. Students come to the Center early in their Knox experience to assess their interests, explore career options that will drive the course of their education, and browse through a library of resources on careers, employers, and graduate and professional schools. Online tools allow students to navigate the job search process. Through counseling sessions, students will learn the interviewing and negotiating skills and job search strategies that will assist them with their goals, whether that is to receive an internship, attend the graduate program that best meets their needs, or obtain that first job post-Knox that will lead to a successful, fulfilling career.
But the assistance doesn’t stop when students leave campus. All of the resources that are available to students — from self-assessment to job search strategies and a myriad of career management tools — are also available to alumni at the Bastian Family Center for Career and Pre-Professional Development in Alumni Hall.
