Major-to-Career Connection

The relationship between academic major and career options is not always linear. The Center for Career Services has resources available to help your students learn about the variety of career and job possibilities available for every major offered at Marymount University.

Resources include online career exploration programs and industry databases. In addition, the Center for Career Services welcomes in-class presentation requests and is eager to collaborate with faculty and their departments to design more targeted classroom presentations, discipline-specific events, and panel discussions featuring alumni and current professionals working in a particular industry. Consider inviting one of our staff members in to your classroom for a presentation on one of the following topics or contact us to further discuss how we can customize a workshop or program to meet your students’ needs

At times, students do not fully grasp the relationship between the effort they put toward excelling in the classroom, on the playing field, as a student organization member or officer, at their part-time job or internship, volunteering with their church or in the community, and the skills and experience they are building along the way. Remind them of their unique assets – Especially during times when the job market and economy are struggling, students need to find ways to build their skills, experience, and confidence that will set them apart from other applicants and help them shine during interviews.
