Career Success News

The Office of Career Services is proud to announce the Executives in Residence program, designed to bring professionals into our offices to help us better serve our students and prepare them for the job search and more importantly, their careers.

As the leader in career education, we stress the value of bringing people from various industries to interact with our students in a variety of ways; from in-class presentations, to mock-interviews, and networking events. It’s important that students get access to a diverse amount of knowledge from a variety of sources as building a successful career plan takes a lot of work!

Preparing for the working world after being immersed in a comprehensive education can feel incredibly overwhelming. Our Industry Specialists work countless hours meeting with students, researching industry trends, and collaborating with faculty and employers to provide the most up to date knowledge on hiring trends.

This Spring, we are joined by Gary Anderson, once a customer advocate of a multi-billion dollar corporation and Jean Turner, retired Director of Human Resources, still actively involved in the community. You can read their full bios here.

This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for Stevenson students to get assistance transitioning into the professional workforce.

Drop by and meet with the Executives in Residence in Wooded Way. Gary Anderson will be on campus on Monday from 1-3pm and Jean Turner on Wednesday from 1-3pm.

Well, spring break is officially over and if you're graduating this Spring, or looking for a summer opportunity, now is the time to get organized.

The application process itself can feel like a job. Different companies and organizations have varying deadlines, procedures, and requirements. This is a lot to keep track of! Staying organized will help make the application process more manageable, which will help keep your stress manageable....

It’s not easy being a job seeker. There are resumes to perfect; contacts to network with; databases to scroll through; references to check on; cover letters to write…

It’s not easy being trans, non-binary and/or gender nonconforming. You are not sure if you should come out to employers; you are worried co-workers will express transphobia; you are mis-gendered in an interview…

It’s not easy!

However, there are resources and support out there to help your job search become just a little bit easier. You are not the first person to this and you won’t be the last! (These resources are also helpful for allies and family members to consider when supporting a trans person.)

  2. Coming out in the Workplace
  3. Tips for Allies
  4. Dress for Success! Look for trans and genderqueer friendly tailors such as Bindle and Keep featured in the new documentary “Suited” on Netflix. Visit the Stevenson University Career Success Closet to pick out a free outfit to help you feel confident when you land that interview!

This March 7th, the Office of Career Services will be partnering with the office of Multicultural Experience on the Diversity Career Expo.

Learn how to positively promote your diversity/skills/strengths during the application process, have candid conversations with employers who are looking to recruit for interns, volunteers or full-time positions. Network with organizations, make connections and hopefully land a position!

Career fairs are essential for students who want to connect with employers and potentially secure a job position, or at the very least, get a job lead. Not only is it a great way to meet various employers in one place and learn more about the types of positions they offer, but meeting an employee at a career fair is a great way to learn about the company culture and values of the organization. It is guaranteed that you will learn more about the job and the organization at a career fair than you would from a short paragraph description in a job posting....Click here to read more.

As we begin a new semester here at Stevenson University, the staff of Career Services took some time to reflect on 2016 and make a list of the accomplishments we were most proud of in the last year. As an office whose primary goal is to serve students in reaching their career goals, you can usually find us in counseling appointments, meeting employers about potential jobs and internship opportunities, in class presentations talking to students about building their personal brands, or around campus hosting a variety of events, and developing new career content....
