Some students may not know exactly what they want to do as a career, but they don’t have to go far to find help exploring their options.

The Career Development team hosted an event Sept. 26 in the Harvin Center to help students research possible careers.

“We want to help students and alumna find jobs,” Career Counselor Fernando Garza said at the Career Exploration event. “Our target is students who do not know what they want to study and what to take.”

To further help students land a job after graduation, the department has also created a special site just for students and alumni. Hire Viking specifically helps Vikings find part and full-times in their chosen field, plus work study jobs on campus.

The Career Development office has several other events planned this semester as well. Transfer Day will be from 9-11 a.m. Oct. 12 in the Harvin Center, Careers & Cupcakes from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 8 in the Harvin Center Career Kiosk and a Job Fair 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 14 in the Harvin Center and Nov. 15 in the Coleman Center at West Campus.

The kiosk in the Harvin Center is looking for three part-time/work study jobs and students can apply through the Hire Viking site. If any students would like to research their career choice or try to figure out what career would be best, visit the Career Development office in the St. Clair Building, Room 116, or visit www.delmar.edu/placement.
