About Us

The Career Development Center guides students through the process of choosing a career and connects students and alumni with employers from across the country. Of Central Michigan University graduates, 91% are employed or continuing their education within 6 months of graduation. Employers post more than 50,000 job and internship opportunities for CMU students each year.

We help students and alumni:

  • Become self-aware by identifying their skills, interests, and values
  • Explore career options
  • By empowering them to take action toward their career goals

We help employers:

  • Connect with top CMU talent
  • Grow their brand through a variety of interactive programs
  • Become campus partners through our Employer Partnership Program
