Career Development


Ashley Kabakci, Associate Director

The Center for Career Development, located on the third floor of the Roaden University Center, provides a variety of career resources for students and alumni. Freshmen and sophomores are encouraged to complete one or more career assessment programs to assist in determining their major course of study and to examine potential employment opportunities within various professions. Full-time students who have reached sophomore status and have achieved a 2.5 overall GPA are eligible to participate in the Cooperative Education Program. Program participants obtain on-the-job learning experiences that can provide a realistic evaluation of a career choice along with giving them the opportunity to earn a supplemental income to aid with college expenses.

Recognizing the benefits to be gained through the use of cutting-edge technology, Career Development maintains a full service web site at (www.tntech.edu/career). Students, alumni, and employers may access information about campus recruiting activities via this website. Internet “weblinks” have been set up as a quick resource tool to use when searching the Internet for career resources and job opportunities.

As the university’s centralized recruiting facility, students reaching senior status should register with the office for assistance with their job search. Advice and suggestions to maximize interviewing strategies and resume preparation are also provided. Registration is required for students and alumni to participate in on campus interview activities. Registration is free for all students and alumni.
