About Us

The Smith Career Center provides comprehensive career services to students and alumni as well as recruitment assistance to employers. The programs and services offered are innovative and responsive to current trends and economic conditions affecting the job market and career opportunities.

With the help of the Smith Career Center students and alumni can explore and define career options, develop job search strategies, obtain career-related work experience and identify and connect with prospective employers. The Center provides individual career advisement, job search workshops, extensive web-based career resources, a targeted internship & full-time employment database, a one-credit course in job search strategy, several job fairs, a graduate/professional school fair, and campus interviews with prospective employers.

The Smith Career Center and the Springer Center for Internships also administer Bradley’s centralized co-operative education and internship program. Through internships, cooperative education, and summer or part-time employment, students have opportunities for professional development which integrate classroom theory with supervised work experience.

Several hundred employers visit the Bradley campus each year to talk with our students, participate in job fairs and conduct interviews with candidates. Employers are eager to hire Bradley students and graduates because of the many skills and talents that were developed during their years at Bradley.


The Bradley University Smith Career Center empowers students to achieve positive career outcomes through career development, experiential education, and learning opportunities. We partner in this work with stakeholders who benefit from the skills and talents of our students and alumni.


Bradley University's Smith Career Center in support of The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) believes in a world that is inclusive in approach and where equal opportunities and equitable outcomes exist for all. The NACE community is committed to developing and supporting a robustly diverse, equitable, and inclusive community, where all members create and feel a sense of belonging. Through our collective deliberate efforts, NACE provides a basis for social justice. As the voice of professionals focused on the development and employment of the college-educated, it is critical for NACE to be explicit in the expression of our collective drive toward these ideals.

Please read the entire commitment on NACE's website.
