Center for Career Development

See It, Achieve It

You have a God-given calling. The Center for Career Development is here to help you discover that calling and develop the knowledge, perspective and skills to answer it. We will engage with you in your very first year to chart your course and map out an effective plan of action to make your dreams and career goals happen.

  • Choosing a major
  • Career counseling, both group and individual
  • Identifying and securing internship and Workship opportunities

  • Exploring graduate school plans
  • Career searching strategies
  • Researching employers and occupations
  • Reviewing resumes and cover letters
  • Interviewing skills

DIVE Deeper

PBA’s DIVE internship program is coordinated by the Office of Career Development and will provide you with powerful opportunities. Through DIVE’s internship offerings you’ll be able to explore career fields, develop essential skills, connect what you know to real-world settings, connect with future employers and possibly even earn a full-time position after you graduate. And you’ll find these opportunities at some of the top organizations in the world, with names like Amazon, Google and Bank of America to mention just a few.

A Powerful Trek

Through our Career Trek Program, you’ll get out into real-world professional settings and watch the operations up close and personal. These information trips will allow you to see how operations transpire in a broad range of professional industries, speak with employees and supervisors and even network with future employers. Since its founding in 2015, Career Trek has become a powerful tool and taken students to places such as CEMEX, the Port of Palm Beach and the Miami headquarters of the FBI.
