Internships

The Internship Coordinator’s sole purpose is to support students and faculty, as well as companies and organizations through the internship process—we know internships are critical to finding full-time work. According to a National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) study, recent grads who were employed full-time were more likely to have had at least one internship during their college experience.  

Graduate School Assistance

We offer several options to students for graduate assistances. We help with application review and essays. As well as helping draft and edit personal statements. Annual graduate school fairs are occasionally held on campus and mock interviews can be scheduled any time. We can also help connect interested students to resources for preparation for entrance exams like the GRE, GMAT, MCAT, LSAT, etc. 

Job Placement

The CCO is the primary connection point for employers to gain access to Taylor students who are pursuing degrees and experience in their respective field. Employers hire Taylor grads because they are high achieving, hardworking, and intelligent employees. Employers also deeply appreciate the integrity and critical thinking skills Taylor grads bring to their company or organization.

Graduate Reports

In the 2012 Graduate Report, the graduating class was asked to respond to various survey inquiries upon graduating from Taylor. The report presents information on how many graduated students have full and part time employment, are attending graduate school, and are other/still seeking. Specific degrees conferred, graduates responding, geographical locations of graduates, success rate, and level of excellence are also evaluated in this report.

Drew Moser

After I graduated from Taylor in 2002, I married my beautiful wife, Rebekah, and we have four children, Ben, Isa, Sam, and Stella. I’m an avid baseball fan and enjoy watching it as much as I do coaching my kids' sports teams.

I received my MA in Christian Studies from Denver Seminary before returning to Taylor as the Sammy Morris Hall Director. I then received my PhD in Educational Leadership from Indiana State University.

I have now been the Director of Calling and Career going on two years. I love getting to work with students through some of the most important questions they ask during their college careers. My job gives me the opportunity to do just that—I get to see them thrive.

In the past, if you had a college degree, you were guaranteed a job. Now, having a piece of paper is not enough, you have to be prepared to hit the ground running and stand out among everyone else applying for a job.

Today’s college students have infinite amount of options before them, which can make the decision process difficult. In the Calling and Career Office, we can help students navigate through choices.
