Career Services

Laurel University provides its students with information to prepare them to step out into a career; however, a Career Services Department, including the development of alumni contacts and referrals, is in process.

In the meantime, students are encouraged to use programs developed by the High Point Public Library for resume and interview preparation. In addition, the following links assist students, graduates and friends of the college in their search for ministry positions:
