Career Development

Campus clock

The Center for Career Development and Global Engagement at Bethel University assists students in fulfilling their unique calling by discovering their gifts, discerning God’s plan, and obtaining the life skills necessary to reach their potential within the realm of career development. 

Our Career Development department has tools to help you make informed decisions so you're not entering a major based on someone's opinion. And rest assured that while there are no wrong decisions, there may be better ones. Also know that a major doesn't define you. Just because you major in psychology doesn't mean you can't work in the business world. Explore our resources, and see where God takes you.
