Clemson Center for Career and Professional Development


Undergraduate and graduates students are developing the competencies employers and graduate/professional schools seek. Faculty and staff can help students realize the competencies they are developing, help students learn how to articulate them, and encourage students to continue developing them in order to meet the demands of an evolving world and – UNLEASH THEIR INNER TIGER.

In addition to general handouts and workshops/videos, the CCPD developed competency resources for students, faculty, and staff.
