Employment Resources

Diversity networking sites help students from diverse backgrounds find mentors, professional development opportunities, scholarships, internships, and employment so that diverse people can contribute to our social institutions. These sites are intended to support students from populations not typically represented in workplace leadership to ensure the next generation of decision makers represent all walks of life.

Professional Development

Professional development is the ongoing process of learning skills related to your career. These skills may needed to obtain a job and to keep it. Students should attend campus workshops on skills such as résumé building, networking, and interviewing, but should also pursue opportunities related to their fields. These may include seminars, conferences, certifications, etc. Employers are looking for someone who can identify the skills they will need to succeed and take the initiative to learn them. Remember that professional development in North America is an ongoing pursuit. Employees are expected to keep up to date on the skills and knowledge relevant to their fields.
