Christopher Newport University really teaches us how to prepare for the real world post-grad. The Center for Career Planning does a great job with hosting workshops, information session, the career fair and other events that help us gain more knowledge about careers, jobs and internships. The center also welcomes students for resume reviews, mock interviews and help with choosing the right career and learning what we can do in each career.
Professors are also a great source for gaining knowledge about what the real world is really like. From personal experience, I have had professors who have impacted and advised me through my decision of what career I will be going into. Academics at CNU also is geared to help improve skills needed for life after college. Some professors require presentations in their classes and I believe that improves our public speaking skills, which is necessary in the real world.
