A new Career Development Center is scheduled to open this fall in the University Center, providing more interview rooms, an employer lounge, a state-of-the-art seminar room, and "smart" conferencing capabilities. "The Career Development Center is where talent meets opportunity," says Timothy Quinnan, vice president for student affairs. "Our students are the high-achieving talent, and opportunity comes in the shape of corporate recruiters seeking to hire them." The center will include internship and job postings as well as workshops on interviewing and résumé preparation.
"We will introduce the Career Continuum Model, which delivers key growth experiences to students from the first semester of their freshman year through alumni status, enabling them to give back as mentors, internship site providers, and through hiring fellow Mavericks," Dr. Quinnan says.
