A Career is a Lifelong Journey

Davenport University Career Services can help you plan the next stages in your career and assess your strengths and interests as you consider a career change. We can help you incorporate up-to-date networking tools and strategies into your professional life or career growth. 

One of the most recent powerful professional networking tools is LinkedIn.  It's important to treat this networking site differently than your common social networking sites, such as Facebook, and we provide some important do's and don'ts for this site here.

Our alumni also play a crucial role in the professional development of our current students. As mentors, through participation in our professional development events and workshops, as a member of the Davenport University Career Services Employer Advisory Board, or simply by posting open positions available in your organization to PantherJobs!, you can be meaningful part of the professional development of future DU graduates!

Davenport University also offers career expanding certifications and training through IPEX, the Institute for Professional Excellence. Click on the above link and learn more about how you can advance your professional skill sets through IPEX.
