Bethany’s Office of Career Services is committed to assisting students and alumni with the career exploration and employment-search processes.
In career services, our mission is to help individuals first learn about personal skills, values and interests, then discover how different careers fit with those skills, values and interests.
We provide a variety of services to help individuals make the match between self and career.
From selecting an academic major to securing that first professional position, the career-services staff leads students and alumni through all facets of the career development process.
