Career and Calling

Career and Calling at Houston Christian University is the centralized career resource for all majors including alumni. We prepare all of our students for the World of Business beginning in the very first year of college and the career coaching and developing of our students continues throughout the undergraduate years into graduate school and beyond as HCU alumni professionals are encouraged to come back home for career assistance and retooling. Here are just a few of our career resources and services available right now:

Mission Statement

Career and Calling seeks to provide assistance for students and alumni in exploring one’s life calling through personal discovery, vocational exploration, and educational training.

Career Center

Career success begins with visiting the Career Center! Learn about upcoming networking events, Handshake appointment scheduling, sign up for real and mock interviews, register for Career Fairs, and experience the Career Insiders Series.

Discover Your Calling

We want to help you discover God's call for your life and learn more about yourself and your career options. The Career Road Map outlines milestones you should accomplish each year in college. If you are unsure of your career path, we encourage you to take our Career Assessments.

Community Internships Program

Many companies use Internships as a means of filling entry-level roles with students who have already been trained and are ready to engage as a valuable employee. Internships also contribute your professional development. The Community Internship Program has processes in place to ensure you are prepared and confident when engaging employers.

Employers Hire Huskies

Career and Calling offers career counseling, development, and comprehensive programming to prepare students to enter the world of work and community service. We provide a range of services to employers which include on-line job postings, internship placement, resume referrals, career fairs, on-campus interviews, information sessions and more.
