Metrolina Career Fair
Please make plans to join us for the Fall, 2014 Metrolina Career Fair, which is open to all current students and alumni. For more information about these career fairs, please visit www.metrolinacolleges.org.
The best way to make a decision about your post college plans is to have solid information. Just as you would research what car to buy, which digital camera to purchase, or which iPod is right for you. You need to become an informed consumer of career options.
Each Spring, Belmont Abbey hosts a Career Expo which provides the opportunity to:
- See what types of employers hire Liberal Arts college students and graduates;
- Learn what types of positions are out there for you
- Meet and Greet representatives from companies
- Network with employers for future employment opportunities
- Gain knowledge about the hiring process
- See which companies are looking for interns
Who knows? You may even get a chance to interview with a company that day!

Focus Career Assessment
The first step in the career development process is to first assess your personality, interests, skills, faith, and personal values, to determine how they fit in with desired careers. The path to personal and professional success starts with these questions, and will help you decide on careers that provide you with the stability, success, and happiness that are essential to a productive life.
The Focus assessment tool is a web-based program that examines your personality, interests, skills, and values, and provides feedback to begin the career exploration process. The use of the Focus system should be accompanied by an appointment with Stephannie Miles in Career Services, to fully maximize the experience.

Mentor an Abbey Student
One of the best ways to connect back with the Abbey community is by providing assistance to our current students. Consider becoming a mentor to a student who is seeking information, advice, and counsel on how to enter your career field.
Assistance can be provided through informational interviews, one-on-one meetings, job shadowing opportunities, providing internship experiences, or by simply meeting a student for coffee on a regular basis at our new on-campus coffeehouse. Your expertise and advice will be invaluable to a student seeking a career path, or simply needing advice on how to transition from the Abbey to the “real world”.
To become a mentor, contact Stephannie Miles in Career Services at 704-461-6873 or StephannieMiles@bac.edu
