Career Development

Bethany’s Career Development Center provides students with the resources and guidance necessary to successfully manage their career and employment opportunities. The Career Development Center actively assists students and alumni to find rewarding and fulfilling vocations or to prepare for graduate school. We offer a helpful link for students between coursework and the possibilities that await them in the workplace and the community.
