Career specialists assist with job search, resume writing, and LinkedIn development. Alumni from various industries come on campus to participate in mock interviews and classroom presentations. Students attend the annual Job & Internship Fair to meet recruiters and hiring managers. 80% of George Fox students are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation.
