The Tiger Station assists students throughout their university experience in assessing personal interests, exploring careers within a chosen major, developing job search skills and materials and exploring graduate school and employment opportunities.
A career counselor will guide and support students as they prepare for the transition from university to career.

Free handouts are available on a variety of topics. Programs on dining etiquette and networking with professionals are also held throughout the year. Individual appointments may be scheduled at the office for one-on-one support and guidance through the self-assessment and job search process.
A career resource library is available for students to access career and job- related information. Free materials on careers, job search tools, interview preparation and graduate school are also available for students.
