The career development process is one that happens outside of the classroom and throughout your years at Oregon State. Like all good things, it can take time. Through careful planning and preparation, you can make sound decisions that move you toward your professional and life goals.
Housed in the Science Success Center, Career Development is an essential part of your day-to-day life as a student in the College of Science at Oregon State University. Career Development offers resources, guidance and professional training that will enhance your academic life, help you explore internships in your field of interest and pave the way to a fulfilling career upon graduation. From freshman to senior year, we will help you with career training and the development of other professional skills to help you create a way forward and transition from college to the workplace or to post-graduate and professional degree programs.
Our Career Development programs span your college years and even continue one year beyond your graduation. You can take advantage of all our programs, including professional training bootcamps, networking events with premier industries and research labs and expert coaching on how to present yourself successfully through resumes, written correspondence and in-person interviews.
Our science career advisor Claire Wu specializes in helping science students determine their goals, explore career paths and provides the tools for students to identify their career interests and obtain the skills needed to be successful. Our Career Development team is ready to direct you to resources that help you gain competency in networking, professionalism and leadership skills necessary for success in an increasingly competitive, global workforce.
It's never too early to start thinking about your future.
