By exploring personal traits and values, cultivating abilities and skills and acquiring career-related information and experience, Lyon College students attain increased competence and confidence in their ability to create career paths leading to personal fulfillment, success, significance, and service. The Career center recognizes this and incorporates it in its mission: 

"The mission of the Career Development Center is to further Lyon College's goal of providing a liberal arts education that develops the whole person. "

What Does the Career Center Offer Students?

The dedicated staff members at the Career Development Center provide students with guidance and opportunities tailored to meet their individual career development needs. Additionally, the Career Development Center offers:

  • A supportive environment for Lyon students to explore and plan their career path, offering guidance and opportunities tailored to meet their individual career development needs. The Center's open door policy encourages students to build relationships with Career Center staff and feel comfortable seeking assistance.
  • Many educational and professional resources, including a library of career exploration tools, professional and graduate school information, as well as workshops, career events and personalized assistance with internships, resume building, interview skills and more.

  • Academic credit opportunities for students as they explore career options and develop lifelong career skills. Students can now enroll in BUS 208, a one credit business seminar entitled "Career Professionalism". In this class, Lyon students will assess their own personality traits, skills, and values and develop or confirm a career direction. Students will also create a powerful resume and other self-marketing documents, polish their interview skills, and develop other career and networking skills that will be useful throughout their lifetimes.
