The John P. Fahey Career Center, as an integral part of the Creighton EDGE, provides students with career advising and services to help identify academic and career aspirations while introducing opportunities to gain experience and develop relationships with employers and alumni. The professionals in the Career Center empower, develop, and inspire students to create unique and unparalleled paths by assisting with career assessments and coaching, résumés and personal statements, career events and networking, interview preparation, internship and job search assistance, and graduate/professional school guidance.
Career and Major Exploration
The Career Center engages students as early as freshman year straight through to graduation. Career Advisors are available to meet with students on an individual basis in one convenient location. Students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of career services early in their academic careers, and can obtain assistance with clarifying career goals and options, personality and career assessments, and choosing or changing majors/minors.
The Career Center sponsors workshops and seminars on résumé writing, interviewing techniques, job/internship strategies, professional/dining etiquette, and graduate/professional school preparation in addition to managing three career development programs, EDGE Scholars, EDGE Internship Program, and the Career Portfolio Program. Career Fairs are offered in the fall and spring semesters that provide students the opportunity to network with more than 200 representatives from business, healthcare, nonprofit, government and graduate/professional schools.
The Career Center maintains information and listings for local, national, and international internships. Internships are available during the academic year and summer and vary in length from summer to semester to year-long. Students are encouraged to meet with a Career Advisor to strategize about their internship search and application preparation. All internships are listed online through Handshake.
The Career Center provides information about local, national, and international employment opportunities, industry profiles and trends, information about specific companies, as well as access to Handshake, a comprehensive database of jobs and internships. Handshake also provides access to the On-Campus Interviewing Program.
