A common misconception about the Toppel Career Center is that business majors or engineers can truly benefit from its services. Or, some think that if they are going straight to grad school after graduating, then they don’t really need Toppel.  Actually, our beloved career center offers resources that can help any student, regardless of his/her major.  Below you can find some of Toppel’s upcoming events that are geared toward a variety of majors and career goals.

Note that these are only a few of the events that Toppel has prepared. (They’re like little energizer bunnies that never stop working.) Also, don’t forget that Toppel has walk-in advising to have your resume critiqued, Mondays-Thursdays 10:00 am-4:30 pm. Plus they have a very useful Resume Development Guide that includes sample resumes categorized by major. So, if before reading this article you weren’t sure if Toppel had anything that matched your interests, I hope I was able to change your mind.
