THE UNIVERSITY OF AKRON
THE CAREER CENTER
Welcome to the beginning of your successful career journey! The Career Center provides career advising and programming while developing valuable relationships with employers and campus partners to provide students with ample opportunities for experiential learning and career development and placement. Take advantage of our services!
Open and ready to serve you
The Career Center is fully functioning and serving students, displaced employees and the employers in our communities. Voice mail messages are being returned, and already two displaced employees have contacted the center and are scheduled for meetings with the center’s director, a 25-year veteran in career counseling and placement.
The Career Center is staffed Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Typically, the front door is locked only on the rare occasion that no one is available to staff the front desk. It was locked intermittently for a limited period of time earlier this week, although staff continued to assist individuals who stopped by.
Our former employees will receive full and personal attention. We have workshops planned and have reconfigured to best serve their needs.
