Throughout my college career, I've made a consistent effort to utilize the CCD's resources, attend career workshops, stop by drop-in hours during lunch, and set up appointments with career counselors for networking advice, cover letter critiques, and mock interviews .... I attribute much of my professional growth and development to the CCD. The CCD staff has been a constant source of support and guidance.
