We invite you to explore our website and to encourage your students to do so as well. Once you are familiar with our services, you can discuss with your students how The Career Center can help them. Below are just a few of our services that may be of particular interest to you when referring your students to The Career Center.
Individual Advising Sessions
Students can make individual appointments with career advisors to discuss choice of major, career options, job strategies, resume writing, and graduate school opportunities. Any career-related topic of concern is proper for discussion with a career advisor.
Job Shadowing Program
The Job Shadowing Program is an opportunity for Loyola students of all majors to obtain career development guidance from a successful professional. Interested students should speak with a career advisor.
A number of helpful online resources are available to students, faculty, and alumni through The Career Center website. Please take a moment to explore them and contact The Career Center for usernames and passwords.
On-Campus Recruitment Program
Loyola's On-Campus Recruitment Program brings employers to campus during the fall and spring semesters to interview students for jobs and internships. More than 150 companies participate in this successful program that is open to students of all majors who have completed the required workshops.
Hands-on experiences, like internships, offer students opportunities to reflect on, integrate, and apply skills and knowledge. Pairing internships with other forms of academic and experiential learning enables students to gain the professional skills needed for effective participation in the workplace. The Career Center provides many services to help students locate and secure internships such as career advising related to interest, ability, and values assessment; instruction on researching opportunities through database, printed, and alumni resources; and training in resume writing, business correspondence, and interviewing.
Alumni Career Network
Approximately 1,200 Loyola alumni are members of this successful network. They serve as a source of career information and employment opportunities for students and fellow alumni. The network may be accessed through Hounds4Hire, our web-based recruiting system, requiring a username and password.
Curious about your students' first destination after Loyola? Each year, The Career Center conducts an undergraduate follow-up survey on the graduating class. Graduate follow-up information is also available to faculty and students interested in information regarding opportunities for employment and admission to graduate school.
The Career Center sponsors/co-sponsors a number of special events throughout the year. These include the fall internship fair, spring career fair, employer presentations, Job Shadowing Program, and Practice Interview Program, as well as Maryland Career Consortium Career Fair. We greatly appreciate your assistance in encouraging students to participate in these valuable opportunities.
