It is our mission to educate students and alumni on the career development process and to teach them the lifelong skills of personal career assessment, resume/cover letter writing, and how to manage their own career development.
The Office of Career Services endeavors to provide complete career development services in a welcoming, educational environment. We believe that the path to success is through the awareness of your personality, interests, skills, faith, and values and developing a career development plan that meets your individual needs. We strive to assist our students and alumni in reaching personal excellence and virtue.
We also strive to meet the various and individual needs of our employer organizations in an efficient and complete manner. All services are offered with the belief that without you our students can not succeed in leading a virtuous and productive life.
The first step in the career development process is to first assess your personality, interests, skills, faith, and personal values, to determine how they fit in with desired careers. The path to personal and professional success starts with these questions and will help you decide on careers that provide you with the stability, success, and happiness that are essential to a productive life.
The Focus assessment tool is a web-based program that examines your personality, interests, skills, and values, and provides feedback to begin the career exploration process. The use of the Focus system should be accompanied by an appointment with Stephannie Miles in Career Services, to fully maximize the experience.
Contact Career Services for the institutional key code and to set a follow-up appointment.
Belmont Abbey College is now partnering with Handshake, a career management platform, to help you discover new career paths and find amazing jobs and internships.
