Journal of Career Development
To fully understand placement issues at the University of Missouri-Columbia (MU) one must realize that career services functions are decentralized. MU has eight individual career services offices that focus on issues related to careers, primarily for juniors and seniors. These career services are supported by the following schools: Business & Public Administration; Engineering; Education; Human and Environmental Sciences; Library Science; Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources; Law; and Journalism. This structure leaves Arts and Sciences students and freshmen and sophomore students, as well as deciding students to be served by the Career Center (CPPC). To develop and encourage open communication between the various career services offices at MU, a Placement Council has been established. The group meets once a semester to articulate changes and concerns in career services.
