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.
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.
During the summer, you MUST make an appointment to meet with the Executives in Residence by calling Career Services at 443.352.4477.

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.

PHEW! That's A LOT of networking.
So, you went armed with your resume, your 30 second commercial, your research on the companies that were in attendance, and of course you were professionally dressed, and had the perfect handshake and eye contact! But what do you do after the fair/event is over and how do you keep in touch with the recruiters or the representatives that you met with at these events?...Click here to read more.
