Welcome to Career Services

Discovering the path to your future after Chowan University starts on the first day you enter college. Every experience you have here at Chowan University will help mold your future endeavors. The Chowan University Career Services mission is to assist and provide students and alumni with a wide range of resources to achieve professional success.

Whether you are a current student, alumni or faculty/staff, Career Services is here to guide you on that path, through career counseling, resume preparation, job seeking, internships, and pursuing higher education. We assist students who are exploring majors and career paths and offer advice on how to best use their talents, strengths, and interests. Career Services will help enhance this by providing workshops that give students insight on how to best prepare for the future. These workshops include resume writing, interviewing skills, job/internship search strategies, marketing yourself in the workforce, and networking.

Career Services at Chowan University is open to all Chowan students and alumni to guide and assist them in the process of career planning and job searching. Prospective employers may also use Career Services to post job opportunities and review online resumes and portfolios exclusive to Chowan University. Chowan has also partnered with the College Central Network to help students and alumni publish resumes for internships and jobs.
