Career Development assists students as they move through the steps of career exploration and decision making from the first year to graduation and beyond. Professionals coach students in assessing their interests and abilities, exploring the world of work, finding appropriate graduate schools, seeking employment and internship opportunities, writing résumés, preparing for interviews, and connecting with employers via events, presentations and social media.

Job Search & Preparation Resources

MyTLU

A student's one-stop shop for career advice and a plethora of resources and links to jump-start your job search. Students can even contact the career development office to have a résumé reviewed and optimized for your personal and professional goals.

TLU Career Link

Students and alumni use TLU Career Link to connect with fellow bulldogs in the workforce. Here, you can post your résumé, search for jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities and find out about on-campus career development events and information sessions. Recruiters also use TLU Career Link to post jobs, internships or volunteer opportunities. Employers, graduate schools and nonprofits can request on-campus recruiting sessions and students can schedule on-campus interviews with prospective employers.

InterviewStream

Students and alumni can sign up for a TLU account where they can practice interviewing skills, a personal elevator speech or pitch and get reviewed by career development staff. TLU professors use this tool to customize interviews for their specific field to help prepare graduates for their first job interviews. 

Glass Door

Students can vet a company's description against real reviews by employees on the inside. In addition to reviews, Glassdoor.com gives access to possible interview questions and salaries employers wouldn't disclose in a job description. Students can get a feel for a company's culture before even applying to see if it's the right fit for them.
