Welcome Students!

Our overarching mission in Career Services is to help guide students in their realization and pursuit of God’s calling for their lives and we look forward to assisting you in this exciting process. Tangibly, this means working through our Four-Year Process where we encourage you to assess yourself, explore your career options, decide upon a career path and pursue a job. We offer many services and resources that are itemized below to assist you in this career development process. We hope you will take advantage of them during your years here at Grove City College!

Scope of Offerings/Services

Career Counseling

You can meet with a career counselor to discuss a variety of topics including your major, career options associated with your major, interviewing advice, resume and cover letter assistance, job and internship searching strategies, and more.

Self-Assessment

Self-assessment testing is available to students using the CSO.  We provide students the opportunity to take four free assessments through the web resource, MyPlan, as well as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) for a nominal fee per assessment. These assessments provide feedback on career options that may be a fit given one's personality (MBTI) and/or interests (SII). Career counselors are available to help students interpret assessment results and connect those results to potential career paths.

Career Library/Resources

Our career library in our centralized office offers 100+ titles on a variety of career-related topics including:
Calling/vocation
Major-to-career guides and books
Internship listings
Employer information
Newspapers, special job-related issues of Fortune and Forbes, and other periodicals
General graduate school information
And more!


Stop into our library anytime during office hours to access these resources, as well as our computer stations and printer/copier.

The CSO also provides various web resources and career guides to assist students in their career development.

Internship and Job Search Assistance

Students can meet with a counselor and receive personal advising on internship and job search strategies. Counselors will work with students on goal-setting along with refining job searching skills before teaching you how to pursue opportunities in the advertised and hidden job markets.

On-Campus Recruiting/Job Postings

Each year, many organizations visit campus and interview students in the CSO for full-time jobs and internships, as well as post jobs and internships for our students to view. We would encourage you to register on our online career system, JobGrove, to view these opportunities and to begin to familiarize yourself with this helpful resource.

Workshops/Events

Career Services’ staff members will conduct various workshops/presentations to student groups on career-related topics throughout the school year. Furthermore, our office coordinates numerous events for our students, including our annual fall Career Fair, Internship Fair, Camp Fair, alumni networking events, Unique Careers in Education Expo, Resume Writing Seminars, alumni mock interviews, to name a few.

Mock Interviews

Students can schedule a time to conduct a mock interview with a career counselor. This allows students the opportunity to hone their interviewing skills and receive constructive feedback in order to prepare for internship and full-time job interviews.
