RegistrationRegistration is mandatory for all seniors. Registration includes completing the Voorhees College Career Planning and Placement personal data form and questionnaire and providing two copies of your resume. Juniors and sophomores are required to register within the first 60 days of their class year. This is especially important for students interested in summer internships.
Career CounselingDuring the second year at Voorhees, each student schedules a half-hour appointment with the Career Center for assistance with planning a job campaign, preparing for interviews, writing a resume and much more.
Truth in Disclosure
Intentional falsification of resume data and GPA will result in privileges being reviewed by the Vice President of Student Affairs. It is the students responsibility to review registration for accuracy and completeness.
