Landing your first job after college
An Employer's Perspective
An Employer's Perspective is a series created by Stevenson's Vice President for Career Services, Anne Scholl-Fiedler. In this series, she interviews employers about what they look for in a candidate.
Stevenson's Career Services staff works with you to develop the skills, experiences, and the confidence you'll need for a successful job search and success in your career. You'll also gain access to employers, events, and alumni that can help you during your search.
Expert career advice and individualized attention are vital for you to develop in your career. We maintain a comprehensive online recruiting system, Stevenson Career Connections, which provides you with information on jobs and internship opportunities as well as upcoming career events.
Career fairs and networking events are highly customized at Stevenson. Rather than hold large general programs, we host targeted career and networking events. Last year these included: “Careers in Sports Symposium,” “Nursing Career Fair,” “Day of Design,” “Corporate and Community Connections Career Fair,” “Tech Talk: A Recruiting and Networking Event,” “Women in Leadership Symposium,” “American Chemical Society Symposium,” and veteran's career fairs.
To prepare you for your job search we provide guidance and support for:
- Resume development and critique
- Job search assistance
- Networking techniques
- Brand development
- Mock interviews
- Career assessment tools
- Career counseling
- Graduate and professional school preparation
Network. Network. Network. Our formal Senior Career Seminar is primarily led by employers who share knowledge on cutting edge job search information. We offer a "Dependable Strengths Articulation Process Workshop" that provides a unique way to approach the job search. These programs offer an intensive and hands-on experience in developing your career strategy for building a network to use in the job search. Our industry specialists and career counselors serve as liaisons to our Schools at Stevenson in an approach that allows for content specific advice and knowledge.
We strongly encourage our students to participate in on-campus interviews with visiting employers, career seminars, workshops presented with business and community leaders, career and networking programs, etiquette seminars, and other related events. Employers welcome the opportunity to meet Stevenson students and comment on how well-prepared they are.
