The Office of Career Development is committed to equipping all Coker College students with the ability to think proactively and analytically when approaching career strategy. We aim to provide personalized guidance that will prepare them not only for their first job, but also for lifelong professional and personal development through a rewarding career path.
The Office of Career Development strives to develop students' sense of self by helping them evaluate their strengths, interests, values, and goals early on in their academic career and channel those criteria into successful networks, internships, and mentorships. In part, the knowledge and professionalism that they will gain through these resources and experiences will assist them in transitioning into full-time, rewarding careers.
The resources and information provided by the Office of Career Development are designed to build off of each consecutive year and to be a catalyst for continued professional development and success years after graduating from Coker. By providing these resources, including but not limited to the list below, the Office of Career Development hopes to create an array of services that can reach students in a variety of settings while developing a well-rounded professional self.
