The van Vlissingen Center for Career & Professional Development

ALL OFFICES & SERVICES

We are here to help you to become Career & Life Ready!

The van Vlissingen Center for Career & Professional Development will help all students become “Career & Life Ready” and transform their college experience into a fulfilling and successful life, making connections between the academic curriculum, co-curricular leadership activities, experiential education, and the world of work.

The van Vlissingen Center for Career and Professional Development at Emory & Henry College supports students and alumni toward their professional path. Career paths are different for each person—some roads are straight, while others are meandering.

No matter what your career journey is like, we are here to help you, from exploring careers, choosing a major, finding an internship, conducting a job search and applying for graduate school.

Our trained staff, online tools, engaged alumni and employer network will support you as you work toward a fulfilling career after graduation.
