Handouts and Online Resources

The Academic and Career Planning Center has many resources available in our office for reference related to resume creation, job and internship searching, professional dress, and many other topics. You can pick up these handouts at our office at any time.

Career Counseling

 

Both students and alumni can benefit from the Career Counseling services offered through the ACPC. Students can get assistance with developing a career plan by exploring their interests, abilities and values to find a career path that suits them, as well as with developing a resume and preparing for the job search process. Alumni can receive help searching for jobs, preparing for interviews and more.

Employer Registration

At Penn State Behrend, we welcome employers to recruit potential employees from our ranks of intelligent and talented students and graduates. The Nittany Lion Career Network allows employers to post job, internship and co-op listings, and schedule on-campus recruiting opportunities accessible by thousands of students and alumni from all 16 Penn State campuses, free of charge.

e-Portfolio Development

Electronic Portfolios (e-Portfolios) are dynamic, developmental spaces representing your professional "self" on the Web. More than just a resume, they are becoming standard practice for academics, students, and professionals and typically include examples of skills and achievements, as well as a reflective blog element.
