In an effort to bring attention to the many services offered by the University's Office of Career Services, the organization held a diversity open house for students Wednesday.This is the first year for the open house and Leslie Delerme, assistant director of Career Services and organizer of the event, says this one of the steps the office is taking to increase minority students' use of their services.
"It is my hope that they learn more about the services we offer and the opportunities available through using our office," Delerme says. "Above all, I really hope that the students here will come back and use our services."
The Office of Career Services works to provide students with comprehensive career development and offers many programs, services and assistance to help them with their future career.
Tony Ham, a senior electrical engineering major, says he attended the open house to become more familiar with Career Services and how the office can assist him as he starts applying for jobs.
"I think that it's good to have people who can help you in planning your future," he says. "It's always good to use all of the resources available to you when you apply for jobs."
