Career Planning & Placement Center

Joe Reaves

Director of Career Planning & Placement


The Center's vision is to establish and enhance strategic partnerships with students, faculty, administrators, staff, employers, and community leaders that will form an effective educational and employment network.              

Students and Alumni

Feel free to contact your office if you need any career planning or job search assistance. To access the latest job listings, you must first visit and register with your local Career Planning and Placement Center. You also have the option to schedule an appointment anytime during regular business hours.            

Employers & Community Leaders

The Career Planning and Placement Center would love to host your next recruiting event. Our On-Campus Recruiting Program is a great way to reach our diverse student population and network of professional job seekers. Every year, we host Job Fairs during the Fall and/or Spring semester. To schedule an on-campus visit and/or register for the job fairs, feel free to contact our office. You may also post your latest job openings by emailing, faxing, or mailing them to us.              

Faculty, Staff, and Administrators

Your link to students and connections with business, industry, and community leaders are also extremely crucial in the career planning process. For those reasons, we want to establish a partnership with you and serve as the CAREER CENTER for all of the contacts you have that could possibly lead our students and alumni to gainful employment. If you share this information with us, we will foster relationships with those organizations and make their job listings available to the individuals registered with our office.             

Career Services envisions career development as a life-long process and empowers students, alumni and the community through its programs and services to develop and implement a plan to achieve their current and future career goals.
