Supporting Academic and Career Success

The Careers, Advocacy, Resources, and Engagement (CARE) Center's mission is to support Blackhawk students on their path to academic and career success by helping them access services and resources on campus and in the community that assist them in managing barriers and developing connections.

Prepare for your future career.

Blackhawk wants our students to be prepared for their future. That is why we offer career assistance from exploring possible careers, preparing for job applications, and finding current opportunities. Students may also access the Career Closet, located in the CARE Center (Room 2220), for new and gently-used professional attire for interviews, career fairs, networking events, and the workplace.
