To the Class of 2013

For some JMU seniors, the commencement (no pun intended) of winter break is not the only thing to look forward to following final exams. On December 14th, 2013, over 400 JMU seniors will cross the Convocation Center stage, making the official transition from student to graduate.


To those seniors:

We at Career and Academic Planning would like to congratulate you on everything you’ve achieved, and we’d like to wish you the best of luck in all of your future endeavors. It goes without saying that your degree from JMU has more than prepared you for the real world, and you should be very proud of all you have accomplished thus far.

Last December, Sarah Everett (or the infamous “James Madison Girl”) was a graduate in the fall commencement ceremony.

For many of you, the next step is to find a career that fits your experience and interests. Sometimes the job search can seem overwhelming, but keep with it- you will find your dream job with time. If you don’t know where to start, consider checking out these companies that have been named the “50 Greatest Places to Work” by Washingtonian Magazine. 

If you’ve already found your dream career, keep in touch with CAP about it. Share your success with us through the Recruiting Services Employment Survey. You could also be featured as our next Alum Spotlight! If this is something you’re interested in, email us at, and we would be happy to discuss this opportunity with you.

We hope that you have thoroughly enjoyed your time at JMU, and that you have been able to use CAP’s services to help you along the way. Many congratulations to you for completing your degree. Take pride in this accomplishment; graduating is not something to be modest about.

Congratulations Class of 2013!

Best wishes to you always,

Kelly Gooch, Graduate Assistant
