Veteran Students

VETERANS & THE CCO

As with all students, the Center for Career Opportunities is here to help you establish your own career development goals --whether that means discovering your interests, applying for a great internship or obtaining a full-time position. We encourage veterans to visit the CCO to talk with a consultant concerning any of the following questions:

    • How do I apply my military background to my chosen career field?
    • How do I show my military skills on my resume?
    • How can I best navigate the job market?

Although you will benefit from exploring the resources on the STUDENT RESOURCES page, the career resources on the left-hand side are especially useful for veterans.
