The Career Services staff is dedicated to providing students with the fundamental skills and experiential opportunities needed to prepare for the challenges in an ever-changing, global work force.
Career Services provides Juniata students with individual counseling, computerized guidance and information programs (FOCUS), and workshops on career development topics. The office supports a comprehensive library of up-to-date career resource materials and graduate/professional school information and maintains credential files for teacher candidates. Juniata offers a top Career Day which annually attracts approximately 100 employers and over 500 students. Additionally, Juniata students are invited to participate with other Pennsylvania colleges in numerous area-wide job fairs throughout the year. The largest of these include the Western PA Career Services Association (Pittsburgh area) job fair, the Central PA Employment Consortium (Harrisburg area) job fair, and the Pittsburgh Educational Recruiting Consortium.
The Career Services Office also coordinates Student Internship Programs. Juniata encourages students to seek internship placements generally after completion of the freshman or sophomore years. Students receive assistance in the application process from Career Services and from Juniata faculty. Information regarding credit and non-credit internships is available in the Career Services Office in Ellis Hall.
