Career Development Center
The Career Development Center (CDC) staff works with members of the Guilford College community to aid in career preparation through self and major exploration and the coordination of internships and on-campus student employment. The CDC works to connect each individual’s academic knowledge and experiential learning in ways that lead to fulfilling employment. The department employs a holistic approach to career development by teaching career-related skills through classes, workshops and individual career counseling. Special programs, career fairs and a one-credit course also assist students in their planning. An alumni network gives students access to Guilford graduates who are willing to share their expertise. The CDC houses a library of rich resources that help students plan a major, investigate graduate programs, develop a polished resumé, conduct an effective job search or find an internship (the internship program is discussed in Chapter VII). The CDC also maintains lists of students who are available for childcare and tutoring employment. These lists are distributed to Greensboro-area residents upon request. Reference materials on national and international companies and agencies in the nonprofit sector are also available. The CDC serves all students and alumni and encourages early involvement.
Student Employment Service
The Student Employment Service (SES), a part of the Career Development Center, assists students seeking part-time (on- and off-campus) and summer employment. The SES also maintains lists of students who are available for childcare and tutoring employment. These lists are distributed to Greensboro-area residents upon request.
