Join the new Virtual Career Network!

Welcome to the Advanced Academic Programs (AAP) Virtual Career Network!  This site was developed in order to facilitate networking among students, alumni and faculty, for the purpose of career advancement. All students, alumni and faculty from any AAP academic discipline are encouraged to register and access the Networking Community.

The Career Coach section enables students and alumni to access resources that will support them in the career development process.  Students and alumni can contact a member of the AAP counseling staff by selecting the appointment link.  This section also provides information on self-assessment, including online assessment tools and reflections on values and skills as they relate to career exploration and self-understanding. The Job Search link provides concise information about the technical aspects of the construction of a resume and cover letter, conducting effective interviews  providing references and follow-up skills. The Resources by Program link has a sample list of employers of AAP graduates by academic program and preferred career links to facilitate job searching.  Submit Announcements is open to registered individuals and organizations to post job and internship announcements, as well as information about career fairs, speakers and other career-related  events.  The listings will remain active for one month.

A student advisory committee helped launch this site, and all are welcome to offer constructive comments by emailing us. Thank you for visiting and participating in this networking endeavor.
