ACE provides a variety of services to help students and alumni determine where they are and where they want to be in their careers. Individual career counseling and job search assistance is available to help students choose a major or career field, write a résumé and cover letter, conduct a job search, identify occupations within a certain major, master interviewing strategies and obtain graduate school information.

We post full-time, degree-required and internship positions on our two online career centers, including the Benedictine Virtual Career Center (BVCC) and the Illinois Small College Placement Association (ISCPA) website, College Central Network. The ISCPA is a consortium of private colleges of which Benedictine is a member.

We also host workshops and events throughout the year to enable students and alumni to develop a wide range of professional skills. Various networking events, which allow students and alumni to connect with employers, also occur throughout the school year. See the event calendar for details!
