by Sarah Bedford

The campus community gathered on Jan. 29 to celebrate the grand opening of the Center for Career Development and Internships. The Internship/Co-op Program, formerly in the Henry Student Center, and Career Services, formerly in Conyngham Hall, have combined to form a comprehensive center to promote students professional career development. The center aims to help students clarify goals, assess skills and find the internship experiences that will build their resume and launch their career. Services include internship and career fairs, career coaching, resume assistance, practice interviews, career development workshops and networking opportunities. The event served as an opportunity for students to meet with faculty and staff while enjoying refreshments and giveaways.

Honored during the event was associate professor of biology Jeffrey Stratford who was recognized through student nominations as a “Wilkes Career Champion” for his support as a mentor in a variety of career and professional development activities.  Also noted significantly by students were Edward Bednarz, associate professor of mechanical engineering and  Cynthia Chisarick, professor of accounting.
