Career & Calling

Preparing students for more than a job.

The Center for Career and Calling is here to support the university’s mission to educate students for a life of faith and service to the church and society. Our staff assists in providing the tools and guidance necessary to explore, discover, and plan for a meaningful career after graduation day, because getting a great education in the classroom is only part of the Anderson University student experience. Take a look around to find the resources you need for your next steps!

Handshake

Handshake is the #1 way college students find jobs. Join today and get recruited by the top employers for full-time jobs, part-time jobs, and internships. This platform is also a great way for students to connect with alumni who are already in the fields students are interested in.

answering the call

Calling is the purpose that drives how we invest our time, where we put our energy, and the way in which we use our gifts and talents to serve the needs of the world. According to Frederick Buechner, “The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”

As Parker J. Palmer puts it, it’s what we “can’t not do.”

Wherever you feel called, we want to help you get there with the right major and hands-on experiences. Connect with us to prepare for the job-search process and to take any of the assessments we offer. These services are designed to help students understand and articulate their unique strengths, inform their individual calling, and guide them into a meaningful, purpose-driven career.
