Especially for Veterans
As a veteran you have a set of qualities and professional experience that give you a leg up with your civilian career. In recognizing your strengths, we at the Career Center also appreciate the challenges associated with transitioning back into the culture of civilian life and work environments. The Career Center is here to provide the resources to assist you during this next phase of your career path. In addition to the resources available to all students and alumni, here are links of particular interest to veterans.
