At Drake, Professional and Career Development Services (PCDS) prepares students for meaningful personal lives, professional accomplishments, and responsible global citizenship. Our emphasis is on the learning process, both in and out of the classroom. Career development — at its best — begins during a student’s first year and builds with each internship, research study, service project or part-time job. Ultimately, this process culminates when students seek out and land their first full-time job following graduation.
Contrary to popular belief, career development doesn’t begin the spring of a student’s senior year; it’s a lifelong process. PCDS offers several services that students can take advantage of at any point in their academic career.
One great opportunity for first year students to begin their career development is to attend the All-University Internship and Career Fair hosted each spring by PCDS. This year’s event will take place on February 9 and will feature representatives from a multitude of businesses and graduate schools who come to campus to meet with students.
Please encourage your student to attend. The following list will help you and your student know how to prepare.
If you or your student(s) have questions, please contact us.
