  • Events

    Each semester the Office of Career Services hosts a myriad of events to allow students to network with employers, apply for jobs, learn social etiquette skills, and obtain graduate school information. Visit the events page for a complete list.

  • Get Hired Workshops

    In class workshops that provide students with the latest information on  job search, resumes, cover letters, and interviews.

  • Career Advisement

    Career Services provides career and major exploration. Working with a trained career advisor, you will explore your interests, abilities, and values. To begin the process you may want to look at some resources we have regarding career exploration. It is important to begin thinking about career advisement as a journey and not an event. We look forward to assisting you in your journey. To schedule an appointment with a career advisor please call 716.286.8500 or email careers@niagara.edu.  

  • Self Assessment

    Using the resources provided through the Office of Career Services, you will be able to better assess yourself and your career paths. We offer self assessments such as the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), the Strong Interest Inventory, and My Plan as a tool to help you better understand yourself, your skills, your interestes, and how these can connect to majors and careers.  An appointment is necessary to receive the log in information for these assessments and to interpret the results once the assessment has been completed.
