Career Coaching

Starting your first year at Nazareth, your personal, certified career coach offers help if you're unsure of what you want to do or want to talk over some options. Also, your coach can help you prepare a resume for a job (on or off campus) or an internship — and plan ways to get the most out of your higher education.

They can coach you in making connections and finding "hidden" (unposted) jobs.
