About EOU’s Career Services

EOU Career Services offers coaching, activities, programming, and events for on-campus and online students along with EOU Alumni.  We focus on self and career exploration; on-campus and off-campus EOU student employment; career readiness competencies, the job search process; and job application documents and interview preparation. 

The heart of our work is in helping student’s find a meaningful connection between coursework and the workforce. We collaborate with our partners and community/regional employers to coach EOU students in locating both part-time, temporary, and internship employment while enrolled and professional employment as students wrap-up their degree program.
