Career Center

Welcome to the Valparaiso University Career Center. Our office is the centralized hub for career services across the Valpo campus. Our mission is to serve the needs of undergraduate, graduate, and MBA students from five different colleges and facilitate recruiting efforts for employers. Whether you’re a freshman just starting at Valpo, an alumnus, or an employer looking to hire talented Valpo students and graduates, our staff is here to assist you.

Utilizing the Career Center allowed me to both discover and achieve my career goals. Through outside speaker events and networking opportunities presented by the Career Center, I realized exactly how I wanted to use my degree. Then, with the one-on-one appointments, interview prep, and resume and cover letter reviews, I was able to secure the role I was aiming for. Now, I have a job lined up with PepsiCo in Chicago after graduation and I could not be more excited to start! I hope everyone can take advantage of all of the amazing benefits the Career Center has to offer to reach their full professional potential.  -Beth C. ’21
