"The CCD has been a wonderful resource for me throughout my undergraduate career. Not only have I had amazing opportunities at the events to connect with employers, but the resume reviews and mock interviews have been essential in acquiring my summer internship with Ernst & Young!"

“After meeting with Logan to go over interview questions, I received a job offer from US Steel, and I accepted it! I appreciated Logan’s help going over interview questions because I truly believe it helped me prepare for the interview. The interviewer called me personally and told me I nailed my interview, and he believed I was a great fit for the position!”
