Career Development Program

Welcome to the Beacon College Career Development Center. Our goal is to empower students with the skills needed through hands-on experiences.  The Career Center helps create a foundation for long-term employment success. While working through the Career Development Model, students develop a transitional plan while taking courses that prepare them for the workplace or to graduate school.
