If you asked me if my college career center was helpful when I was in school, I'd have to say no. And a lot of college graduates would agree, either because their own colleges' career centers were a joke, or they just didn't care enough to use them. It depends on who you ask (I would blame my experience on the latter).
BUT, (yes, there is a "but") career centers are well aware of this unhelpful stigma, and some are going the extra mile to change it. They're turning to resources like Twitter, knowing that students and alumni are likely using the site already.
Not every college is following this trend, but here's a short list of the ones we found that are. NOTE: You don't have to be a student or alum of these schools to reap the benefits of their Tweets.
Lewis University – Illinois
University of California (Santa Barbara)
Central Connecticut State University
University of Pennsylvania
University of Illinois Springfield
Westfield State College – Massachusetts
Alfred State College – New York
Lindenwood University – Missouri
