The Career Center’s mission is to provide career services to all students and alumni of The University of Akron. Students also may participate in the Career Advantage Network (CAN) program, which provides opportunities to gain major-related work experiences prior to graduation for eligible students, regardless of academic major.
- Student Employment
The Career Center also houses the Office of Student Employment. Student Employment helps students find part-time job opportunities both on and off campus. While these jobs may or may not relate to a student’s major, they are designed to work with academic class schedules. Gaining work experience while going to school is an excellent way to develop marketable skills, refine career interests and goals, network with people, work in a professional environment, and earn money to assist with college and living expenses. Student Employment works with and maintains relationships with employers from many sectors of the marketplace that recruit students for part-time employment and campus work study opportunities.
