Career Development Office

Mary Ellen Kuehl, Director, Career Development Office

The purpose of the Career Development Office (CDO), is to assist students and alumni as they make informed educational and career decisions. A variety of assessments are used that focus on values, interests, personality, and skills. Individual appointments and workshops are complimentary for TWU students and alumni. A nominal fee is charged for some of the assessments.

The Career Development Office achieves this purpose through offering the opportunity to discover one’s sense of life calling. Research conducted by the CDO has shown that the three pillars around discovering one’s life calling are:

  • Identity: Who am I?
  • Direction: Where am I going?
  • Purpose: Why am I here?

Services offered through the Career Development Office are:

  • Career advising
  • Choosing and/or confirming an academic major
  • Career direction
  • Grad School

Employment Coaching

  • Resume critiques
  • Mock interviews
  • Job search
  • Personal statement editing for grad school applications

Cooperative Education

  • Internships
  • Volunteering
  • Student Campus Employment

The Career Development Office is available to participate in this journey by assisting students through the process of self-discovery.
