Classes and Workshops
Classes and workshops are excellent tools to help you develop career skills. We hold many workshops each term, both in Eugene and Portland. Workshops are a great way to get perspective from peers. Everyone is walking their own career path, but it can be inspiring to see what others are doing. Our classes can help you connect what you are pursuing academically with what you want to do as a career. These can be valuable experiences wherever you are in finding your career.
Quality resources are extremely instrumental in expanding your knowledge about specific career fields and opportunities for internships, jobs, and other forms of experience. At the Career Center, we provide an abundance of resources to fit your every need. Whether you want to explore ways to prepare for a local interview or how to work abroad, our knowledgable staff will direct you to the resources you need.
