    Center for Professional Excellence

The Center for Professional Excellence serves as the career center for Harding’s Paul R. Carter College of Business Administration. We are eager to assist students and alumni with their career search and to assist employers with recruiting highly talented candidates.

Each year, the CPE hosts multiple career fairs, employer information sessions, on-campus interviews, and professional development events. These events are great opportunities for students to connect with prospective employers and learn about careers in various fields of business.

Some of the services that we offer students include resume review, cover letter development, job search assistance, mock interviews, job offer negotiation tips, and professional profile photos for Handshake and LinkedIn.

Handshake
