The Center for Career Development

All alumni can use the Center for Career Development for career counseling, resume critiques, career development workshops, career panels, practice interviews, career fairs, and the use of the Optimal Resume System and the College Central Network Job Board.

Career Assessments

As an alumnus, you can assess your personality and interests as they are related to your career choices through taking the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) or Strong Interest Inventory. Both these assessments are available to alumni for a modest fee. Many alumni find the results of the MBTI and Strong Interest Inventory very valuable while determining a new career path or conducting a job search.

Resume building

The Center for Career Development has several resources for alumni to build a winning resume.

Create a resume, cover letter, portfolio, or a professional website by using the Optimal Resume System at https://bloomfield.optimalresume.com

The Center for Career Development offers e-counseling. Send an email to a career counselor and we will respond to your questions. Please allow three days turnaround time. Topics covered are career questions, resumes and cover letters, job search strategies, and graduate school questions. See the email in the contact information or on the career services webpage at http://www.bloomfield.edu/student_life/careerservices

Job Searches

The Career Resource Library with five computer stations is also available for internet research. In addition, there are magazines and books to review, as well as handouts to take home. The job board is through College Central at www.collegecentral.com/bloomfield. Here you can find job postings, on-line career resources, career advice video library, and the job search information kit. Additionally, the office has several job search sites available to alumni.
