Your academic career is a huge component of your Loyola Experience, but you will also spend time answering a lot of big questions: What am I good at? What do I enjoy doing? Is there one right major for me? Does the major I declare prepare me for viable job and career options? Fortunately, you do not have to answer these questions on your own! Countless staff members and your professors are eager to help you discern answers to these questions.
Career Development Center staff works with College of Arts and Sciences, Engineering Science Program, Institute of Environmental Science, School of Communication, School of Education, School of Social Work, School of Communication, School of Education, and Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing students.
Business Career Services is available for Quinlan School of Business students.
The Center for Experiential Learning helps students to connect with hands-on academic learning opportunities, including internships, research, and service learning.
As a Loyola student, you will set up an ePortfolio account, which gives you a space to highlight all of your great accomplishments throughout your Loyola Experience. You will create your first ePortfolio in your first semester, then make edits as you decide how you would like to present your best self and highlight your skills and experiences. The process of reflection required to create your ePortfolio will help you to discern important life decisions regarding how you choose to use your unique talents in your years at Loyola, and beyond!
