Career Services

Career Services provides all students with a variety of career-focused programs, services, and resources to ensure student success during their college career and beyond. Students are introduced to Career Services and our career and professional developmental model beginning in their first year at the University.


Career Services Tools

Career Services maintains a comprehensive career website and portal page which host information on Career Pathways for majors at Stevenson University, job and internship opportunities, on-campus recruiting, job success tips, résumé samples, interviewing resources, career assessments, a calendar of events, and many other tools related to career development. In addition, the Office of Career Services maintains an online Career Management System (CMS) which includes part-time jobs, internships, and full-time job opportunities. Students upload their resumes in CMS, and they are then reviewed for quality control by professional staff members in Career Services and at home.

To assist with major and career exploration, the Office of Career Services provides a diverse menu of career assessments to meet student needs. Assessments that help to identify strengths, interests, values, and personality include the MBTI, the Strong Interest Inventory, Card Sorts (strengths, values), and the Holland interest codes. Online tools include FOCUS and Traitify. Career Services also embraces StrenghtsQuest which identifies student's key strengths providing a framework for powerful branding to open up possibilities for meaningful careers.

Academic Career and Preparation Plan (ACPP)

During their first year at Stevenson, new students meet with a career advisor who provide career coaching to begin the process of exploring their career options and developing a personalized plan to help them realize their values, strengths, and interests. This powerful process will prepare students as competent and skilled professionals ready for the competitive workplace, but also provides an opportunity to research a variety of careers within a multitude of industries in an ever-changing economic climate.

Counseling Appointments with Career Advisors

The Career Services staff works with all students at the undergraduate and graduate level to develop the skills, experiences, and confidence needed for success. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with their career advisor each year to monitor progress toward goals and review the steps they have taken in their Academic Career and Preparation Plan coaching sessions include: deciding your major, career direction, researching careers and jobs, mock interviews, resume and cover letter reviews, internship and job search assistance, networking and career fair preparation, personal brand development, graduate and professional school preparation. Appointments can be made over the phone or on our online career management system.

Career Peer Advisors

Walk-in appointments with trained student paraprofessionals, “The Career Peers,” are available weekdays and select evenings for students to review their resume.


Career Fairs, Networking Events, and Information Sessions

Students are encouraged to participate in a variety of career related events where they can meet and network with employers. Employer events are listed on our CMS and in the Career Services portal and webpage and include: on-campus recruiting for internships and full-time jobs, career seminars and workshops presented by business and community leaders, career fairs and industry networking events, business etiquette seminars, and many other programs. The Office of Career Services collaborates with Alumni Relations, Residence Life, Student Groups, and Faculty to support the career development and life experiences that develop Stevenson University students into prepared and skilled emerging professionals for the workplace.

Executive in Residence Program and Classroom Presentations

Students also have the opportunity to meet with executives in various industries through the Executive in Residence program. The executives are dedicated and highly skilled professionals who volunteer their time to discuss various career related issues with students. Topics range from interviewing to managing expectations in the workforce. They also provide meaningful advice on career pathways, as well as make connections to others in industry. Through partnerships with faculty, Career Services also coordinates introductions to faculty for industry professionals to serve as subject matter experts in the classroom.
