Career Services

Career Services assists cadets with career planning, career experiences, and employment or graduate education opportunities leading to successful transitions following graduation.

VMI Office of Career Services is here to help and support you during these exceptional times.


In accordance with VMI policy, we are making adjustments to our services and programming. We are changing our service delivery to help you virtually through phone, email, chat, and remote appointments!

Cadets and Alumni: You can make an appointment by calling us at 540-464-7560. All appointments will be virtual, using phone or video (Zoom, Google Hangouts, or social media apps). 

Join us on Microsoft Teams for Wednesday Virtual Office Hours from 1100-1300 hrs. Please email us at careerservices@vmi.edu for more information.

Employers: Please email careerservices@vmi.edu. While we won’t be able to accommodate employer visits for now, we are happy to assist with job and internship postings and virtual interview through Handshake.

The Post might be closed, but we are still here to help! Email us at careerservices@vmi.edu and/or call 540-464-7560

 
 

COVID-19 Career Support and Resources

Along with virtual appointments, here are some other resources that you may find beneficial:

Handshake

Handshake is still one of the best tools to assist with your job and internship search. Sign-in using your VMI credentials and set-up your profile. You can explore employers, jobs, internships, and virtual events, all in one place. Just make sure that your profile is complete: employers are more likely to reach out to cadets with a complete profile.

You can find 500 companies hiring students on Handshake here, with the list being updated weekly.


Webinars

Career Services has begun hosting a series of webinars centered around networking and job hunting in this time of economic uncertainty and increased reliance on digital tools. Cadets are invited to call in and participate each week, and highlights of these events will be posted for anyone who was not able to attend.

At this time, most interviews and networking events are being held virtually. These resources will help you navigate how to network and interview online, as well as tips on how to update your job search:
