About

The Career Development Center supports the mission of Appalachian State University and the Division of Student Development, to promote the intellectual, cultural and personal development of its students.

The Career Development Center empowers students and alumni to select and pursue careers consistent with their values, interests, abilities, experiences and education. Our staff works to develop the career and professional skills of students through career counseling, presentations, workshops and web-based resources.

The Career Development Center works to facilitate the University's goal of economic development for the region. Our staff facilitates unions between our students and employers, that benefit the state as a whole, through career fairs, employer workshops and information sessions, networking events and on-campus interviewing opportunities.
