What is VPD?

VPD provides valuable career services to all CTX students and alumni. Whether you're deciding a major, searching for a job or internship, or want to practice your interviewing skills, VPD exists to help you with anything career-related. The office provides tools to help you discover how to leverage your interests and talents toward meaningful work now and in the future.

As a Christ-centered university, Concordia's VPD approaches career advising holistically. Vocation - or calling - may be a certain career, but it also might mean a project or a leadership role on campus. A calling can also be as a student, a parent or a volunteer.
