Career Resources for Faculty
Throughout the day, LVC faculty members are likely to be asked for career advice from the freshman with no major, to the sophomore that wants to change majors, to the junior needing experience, and to the senior seeking a job or assistance with graduate school.
To assist you in your role as advisor, the Office of Career Services provides resources and services through our website and classroom presentations. Use the links below to explore some of our web-based resources. To request a classroom presentation or assistance with a class project related to career planning and the job search, contact Sharon Givler, director of career services, at 717-867-6237.
