The Center for Career & Leadership Development collaborates with faculty, staff, and community partners to provide students and alumni career-focused training that will enhance professional aspirations and lead to a more purposeful contribution to our global society. Common services include administering career assessment tests, developing resumes and cover letters, providing job/internship/externship/graduate school search assistance, strengthening interview skills, hosting career fairs and addressing specific professional development needs (e.g. negotiating salary increases, constructing a LinkedIn profile, expressing proper professional dining etiquette).  Additionally, the Center for Career & Leadership Development connects employers seeking full-time, part-time, or internship candidates to students and alumni of MGA who are ready to enter the workforce.
