MCLA Career Development


Career Development at MCLA focuses on a four-year process that will prepare students for a meaningful career in the ever-changing world of work. Career development connects students with internships, job opportunities, professional development, and more.

The ultimate goal for students in the career development process is to attain “Career Readiness.” Career Readiness is a set of life-long skills that helps students prepare for jobs and/or graduate school by providing networking techniques, resume reviews, exam prep, internship placements, career fairs, and more.

MCLA Career Development recognizes the need to prepare students for success after college from orientation to the time they are alumni.  We offer a comprehensive plan that starts with self-assessment and goal setting during a student's first semester to life-long career coaching as our alumni change careers and/or seek further education.  We invite you to learn more about these services by exploring the categories below.
