​Career Development Handbook

The CCPD staff created this resource for students. The handbook walks you through each of your four years here and offers recommendations regarding each year's professional development activities. There is also a robust resources section that provides plenty of resume samples, cover letter samples, negotiating tips, and so much more. You are required to sign in to view your handbook

Job Scams

Job announcements should not be deemed as a guarantee by the University of Findlay or the Center for Career & Professional Development of an employer's credentials. Do not disclose social security numbers, credit or debit card information, or bank account numbers, or perform any monetary transaction to unknown employers. Students are urged to validate job/internship postings to the Center for Career & Professional Development at [email protected].
To report a scam, file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.


Video interviewing is becoming a more common practice within the hiring process. This platform (free and available to you as a current student and alumni) allows you to practice, get feedback, and practice some more. *Be sure to use your UF email address to log in.*
