Career Resources and Support for Students
The John P. Fahey Career Center, as a part of the Division of Student Success, is committed to assisting students and alumni in exploring purpose and opportunities, developing career-related skills, and implementing career goals that reflect their unique roles in the world of work and their commitment to a life of service to others.
Students will have the ability to:
- Clarify major and career goals
- Develop career-related skills
- Implement career goals
The Career Center engages students in several ways to meet these goals.
Career Advising Appointments
Meet with a Career Advisor to discuss anything from deciding on a major or career of interest to applying for a job or graduate school. Advisors can help you discover what you desire to do and assist you in accomplishing your goals.
Handshake is Creighton University's online career management system that offers many benefits: a large national network of employers and job/internship listings, mobile friendly interface, and personalized experience for students and employers to connect for opportunities. Handshake helps students manage resumes, cover letters, and other employment-related documents; search and apply for jobs and internships; schedule on-campus interviews; access Career Fairs at Creighton University; and RSVP for career events.
Annual Career Events
The Career Center hosts a variety of events each year that aid in your professional and personal development. Opportunities include etiquette dinners, career and graduate school fairs, networking events, employer office hours, and much more. Check out the calendar for upcoming events.
The Career Center provides resources no matter where you are at in your career development, beginning with career assessments and advising to help you explore options, along with resources to connect you with alumni and other professionals to learn more about career paths. If you are in the process of applying for internships or jobs, there are resources for the search, application, and interview processes. You can even access the services of other Jesuit institutions through the Jesuit Career Center Consortium. If your future plans involve graduate or professional school, there are many resources for the application process and trained advisors to work through the process with you.
