Career Planning and Resources
Butterfield Colleges, Unit A, 25 Lawn Avenue
The Career Resource Center (CRC) provides information and advising on a variety of issues from summer employment and time away to graduate school, professional schools, fellowships, and career options. Since students often struggle with the relationship between academic choice and career, counselors at the center are available to students on these and other issues.
The Career Resource Center offers a variety of resources that students are urged to use throughout their undergraduate careers as their own interests and needs dictate. An extensive library of career materials is available for student use. Also, a Career Resource newsletter is published throughout the academic year. These newsletters announce the various programs of the center, fellowship and scholarship information, as well as other career employment and advanced-study information.
Whether you are a first-year student, sophomore, junior, senior or graduate student, focused or clueless, workshops and programs sponsored by the Career Resource Center are a great way to help you make better informed decisions regarding internships, jobs, graduate or professional school. Attendance at our various programs, workshops, and counseling sessions exceeded 4,000 last year.
