Career Center Receives First Bulldog Award


The Career Center staff receive the Bulldog Award recently.
The Bulldog Award was given to the Career Center in January, marking the first time the distinction was awarded.

The Career Center was recognized for the exceptional service they provide to the campus community and employers who are interested in hiring Truman students. The Career Assistants are an integral part of this high service standard and undergo a presitigious training program which has been presented by supervisor Polly Matteson in various workshops at a regional career services conference.

Additionally, the Career Center provides service to all campus departments so they can list positions available for scholarship, work-study and institutional employment on eRecruiting, a Web-based program that allows all campus departments to have equal access to qualified applicants for their student employment positions.

Employers consistently rank Truman’s Career Expo as one of the best career fairs they have attended, citing a high level of individualized attention provided for the duration of their campus stay and throughout the registration process.

The Bulldog Award will be given every other month to a deprtment with practices and policies which lead to excellence in providing outstanding customer service consistently. The recipient of the award also must embody the University’s shared values and exemplify community spirit.
