The Office of Career Services' mission is to respect the individual strengths, goals, values, and cultural backgrounds of Eureka College students and alumni to help them uniquely develop their personal and professional sense of self, and to assist in the transition to the next phase of their lives.
We are located in the Donald B. Cerf College Center, to the left of the Ronald W. Reagan Museum.
Through Career Services, students can prepare for their next steps and future careers through services such as career counseling, interest inventories, résumé development, job-search workshops, career fairs, the new Eureka College Career L.A.U.N.C.H. on-campus career conference, alumni mentoring, internship guidance, and more. The Office also provides resources and information for students planning to further their studies in advanced degree programs at other colleges and universities.
The Office of Career Services strives to be a place where students come to be their most authentic selves, that drives students to pursue the best version of themselves, and where they can feel connected, passionate, and confident. We want to help students take what they’ve learned and experienced at Eureka College and apply it toward finding meaning in their work as capable professionals, or in their life as a post-Bachelor's student, community member, and/or individual.
