Career Services Banner


Career Services is here to help your student with all their job search needs. Although their career choices are their responsibility, you play a pivotal role in providing encouragement and support. Please review the resources we provide and encourage your student to participate in our activities and events. We strive to provide them with guidance and knowledge to make their internship/job search successful.

Career Readiness Competencies
What are the top qualities employers are looking for? Review this self-assessment with your student. The job search process takes preparation, so visit with your student about the importance of building up these skill sets.

What Can I Do With A Major In
Guides are available to students to give them a better understanding of career options within their major.

Students gain professional work experience by participating in an internship or coop program in their field of study. Internships will help your student apply their classroom learning, explore career options, and gain relevant experience that will help with finding a full-time job at graduation.

Handshake is the place to go to check out nationwide internship and full-time opportunities, as well as part-time off-campus jobs in the Hays area. Through Handshake, students may also post their resume for employers to view, sign up for on-campus interview opportunities, and register for workshops and events.

Resume/Cover Letter Resources
We are here to help your student design a professional resume and cover letter. View our major specific resume and cover letter examples, and let your student know we’d be happy to review their documents.

Practice makes perfect! We offer resources on interview questions, first impressions, salary negotiation, and more. Mock Interview events are also offered each semester.

Graduate School Resources
