We have compiled career profiles
from our alumni that contain current job title, employer, position
description, salary range, previously held positions, additional
education, Messiah College courses that were most helpful and how the
HDFS Department helped to prepare the graduate for future
career/schooling ventures. These profiles are also posted on the HDFS
Department bulletin board outside Boyer 351 on a rotating basis.
This booklet presents
information about the career journeys of 20 Messiah College alumni who
graduated with a degree from the Department of Human Development and
Family Science [HDFS]. Their experiences of choosing a major, finding a
job after graduation, and continuing their careers can provide valuable
insight as you discern God's call for your life. These alumni also offer
advice on how to make decisions concerning your career and ways to get
the most out of your college experience. The PDF files takes a little
longer than most files to load so please be patient. If you are
interested in getting a hard copy of this booklet, contact Dr. Raeann Hamon, Department Chair.
The Messiah College Career
Center conducts post-graduation surveys with our graduates six to ten
months after graduation. By following this link, you will be able to
access the information that our department has been provided as a result
of the information gathered from those surveys.
Family Science Professionals in the World (FSPW)
our Department presents themed panel presentations and career
discussions for alternate chapel credit. Department graduates share
about their jobs, how the HDFS Department programs prepared them for
this career, and how their faith interfaces with their work. For the
specific dates, times, and places, check the department events calendar.
