The Career Services Office utilizes the Focus 2 software program to assist job seekers interested in exploring career options, as well as students choosing a program of study. Focus 2 is an Internet-based program that allows the user to access both on- and off-campus. In addition, Focus 2 provides the user access to information about occupations, graduate schools, external degree programs, scholarships, financial aid and non-traditional ways of earning college credit. Participants must gain a password to access the program. Passwords are available in the Career Services Office.

On-Campus Recruiting

Each semester, employers visit our campus to meet and conduct job interviews with qualified candidates. These interviews are open to current students and alumni. Information will be posted listing the name, date, and time of each participating employer prior to the event.

Resume and Cover Letter Assistance

Career Services offers assistance and resources for resumes and/or cover letters. All current students and alumni are eligible for this service.

Seminars

Career Services periodically sponsors seminars and events to educate students and alumni who are seeking to enhance their job-seeking skills. Seminar topics, dates and registration information will be posted prior to each event through the Career Services website, MBU Link and Facebook.

Credential Files

Education majors are encouraged to establish a credential file upon the start of their job search. Documents within a credential file typically include: a resume, three professional letters of recommendation, a copy of your transcript, a copy of your certificate (if one has not been attained yet, a letter from the Education Division explaining your current status is sufficient). Missouri Baptist University uses INTERFOLIO to manage and maintain the credential files of our students and alumni. Users pay a yearly fee to electronically store any or all documents for their file, and have 24-hour access to the system. Any student or alumni may register with INTERFOLIO to manage their credentials, and all education students are strongly encouraged to register.

Career Fairs

The Career Services Office sponsors a variety of recruiting events throughout the year. Some of the events sponsored include the Fall Job Fair, Ministry Month, Seminary Week and a spring semester education job fair. Students and alumni can use these key opportunities to meet and speak with recruiters from various employers and seminaries.

Online Career Library

VAULT, MBU’s online career library system, has hundreds of resources including career journals, reports and statistical data on the job market. Accessing the system requires an active MBU e-mail address. Students can use VAULT to research employers, industries and career subjects easily and efficiently.
