Career Services

Career Services' goal is to empower students to take charge of their personal and career development through self-exploration and making purposeful choices.  By providing students with tools necessary for a lifelong professional development, we aim to support students to successfully live a contributive life.

College to Career at SOKA

Career development is a process which changes with time and experience.  Exploring the many options available, identifying one's skills, interests and values combined with focused preparation are keys to success after Soka. 

Whether you need help exploring possible careers, discovering your talents and skills, help with your resume, or perfecting your interview skills, Career Services is here to help you. The first step is to schedule an appointment to meet with one of the Career Services staff.

Soka's Career Services Office is committed to promoting student success by providing a broad range of innovative services that address the needs of our students. We are committed to contributing to the broader academic mission of the university through our services, resources, and programs.
