Career Development

Career Development is a large component of ACCESS. ACCESS strives to provide our students with support to develop the knowledge and skills needed to secure and maintain gainful employment after graduation. Students learn about their career preferences through career assessments, career research, job shadow experiences and internship learning experiences during their freshman and sophomore years in ACCESS. Students then declare their ACCESS Area of Focus by end of sophomore year which guides their placements for internships and audit course enrollment during junior and senior year to help develop hard skills and knowledge needed to work in a specific career industry.
