Career & Professional Development


“I first approached Career Services during the second semester of my Freshman year and I was blown away at the amount of opportunities that were available to me as a student. This past summer I worked at Parametric Technology Corporation based just outside of Boston, MA. I was given an extraordinary amount of opportunities as a Global Services intern and was able to build reputable connections while strengthening my resume. The guidance and dedication of the Career Services team at High Point University allowed me to obtain internships that set me apart from other students. As a marketing major, I am currently working at Wake Forest University as a sports marketing intern, along with High Point University’s own Sports Marketing department. As a first semester Sophomore, the Career Services team has truly set me up for success early on in my college career. Obtaining these internships has highly motivated me in the classroom and raised by personal expectations for any future opportunities.”

“I recently signed with the Lincoln Financial Group in Greensboro, NC for their summer actuarial internship. I really appreciate the Career Services team’s help in developing my resume and assisting in my search to secure an internship for this summer. I received two offers, one of which originated from the networking that the office helped me do earlier this year. Thanks so much for all your help!”

“Every Sport Management student’s dream is to get an opportunity to work for IMG, the global leader in sports and media. This summer, I was presented with the chance to live out this dream. I interned with the IMG College Seating Department and now I am interning with their Event Management and Marketing Division. I would not have gotten to this point if it was not for the guidance of the Career Services office at High Point University. Each member of the C&IS staff takes the time out of their day to meet with students in a one-on-one setting to ensure our success. Every school has a Career Center, every Career Center has connections, but not every school goes to such great lengths to see that their students are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunities beyond the institution and into the real world. HPU’s Career Center truly lives up to the High Point University motto that “every student receives an extraordinary education in an inspiring environment with caring people.”

“During my Sophomore year I went to the Career Center to help with career planning. I did not have a resume nor did I know how on earth to begin to prepare one. The Career Services team was not only willing to help me prepare a dynamic resume but also willing to teach me how I could do it myself so that I would have the skills to edit it in the future. Just a few months later I secured my first internship with a PR firm. I am currently working for the Courtyard Marriott in High Point which will undoubtedly open up new windows of opportunity in the hotel industry. Throughout my years at HPU, the Career Services team has helped me develop a foundation for success with my career search. They have written me letters of recommendation, mentored me through graduate school applications, and made themselves constantly available to help me, even during school breaks when I was desperate for a quick response. Having such a genuinely caring Career Services team has given me the tools I need to succeed in my career search as well as the confidence I need to pursue just about anything!”

“At High Point University, the Career Services Center is an amazing department. During my final semester at High Point, I met with the personnel in the C&IS department multiple times. We went online and identified local event planning career opportunities in the Triad. In addition, they shared with me several industry contacts to get in touch with and ask about the field in terms of informational interviews/career conversations. I ended up receiving an offer for the Event Planner position for High Point University. It is seriously my dream job! I love HPU and always wanted to work for the school. If it was not for the HPU Career and Internship Services staff, I would not have had the opportunity to gain all of the experience I have had, nor be qualified for the job of my dreams that I just secured! Thank you!”

“The presentation that the Career Services gave on resume writing to the School of Education was great! It was very helpful that they were able to specifically focus on what Education majors need to include on their resumes. The interview tips were also good to hear!”

“I really appreciate the Career and Internship Services team coming to present to the York Hall Honors Students. It was an amazing opportunity for the students to gain professional networking skills and to be exposed to the services that the office provides.”

“I have not completed an internship, but the services that the Career Center offer students makes obtaining one very simple. The Career and Internship Services staff members go above and beyond to make sure that we obtain the internship of our choosing. They help us build resumes, guide us through the application process, and explain how to conduct ourselves once we have secured an interview. They even send out e-mails to students informing us of internships that we might be interested in.”

“I have had great experience interviewing and so far am 100% for being asked to at least an office visit. I OWE YOU A BIG THANK YOU! The Career Services staff at High Point did a more than wonderful job preparing someone like me, who had very little interview experience, to knock it out of the park in the “real” world.”

“I want to thank the Career & Internship Services team for putting the Fall 2014 Career & Internship Expo together. I made some good connections, and got some good leads – especially with Vanguard!”

“This summer I will be interning part-time at LPL Financial and part-time at Edward Jones as a branch assistant. Thank you to the Career & Internship Services staff for their continued efforts over the past year in helping me achieve great success.”

“I was able to easily search for and find my current internship with Mack Trucks as well as other openings through PantherLink because it is designed for college students looking to get a start in their field of choice. It offers an array of internships throughout different areas of study all over the United States providing opportunity for every student at High Point University.”

“After a stressful semester-long search on my own, with the help of PantherLink, I was able to find an internship within a couple of days! By far, the easiest, least stressful process I have ever experienced in terms of finding a job/internship!”
