Business Administration, Class of 1987

I have no idea, it's been almost thirty years since I graduated.

Psychology, Class of 1989

Face to face counseling, work-study, job fairs.

Anthropology, Class of 2014

Professors in my major gave me very good advising and schooling on preparing to apply to jobs and grad school including taking me step by step through every part of those processes. This included resume and cover letter reviews. There were also reviews of our GPAs, interests, and research to help us figure out what grad schools we should apply to. The school and my major allowed me to have opportunities to network almost every week both in and outside of my major and allowed even undergraduates to meet with established professionals in their fields. There were also plenty of opportunities to work alongside these professionals so I could get good experience and references.

Alumni
Supply Chain Management , Class of 2013

Internships are heavily encouraged in the Broad college of business, and their career services group does an excellent job connecting and preparing you for those opportunities.
