Career Services

Our Job? Advancing Yours.

Our Career Services team is committed to helping students build the professional foundation they need to become the purpose-driven leaders the world demands. We encourage students to seek meaningful career experiences, and we connect them with opportunities reflective of their skills and aspirations, whether at the local, state, federal, or international level. 

With a holistic approach that includes resume reviews, career events, mock interviews, career coaching, and offer-negotiation assistance, we provide comprehensive services that empower students to confidently pursue their career goals. We are likewise actively engaged on the other side of the process — working hand-in-hand with employers to facilitate partnerships and meaningful networking opportunities.

My Batten experience—and the staff and professors with whom I studied and worked—all helped me to better define my interests and decide exactly what it was that I wanted to do.
