A Connection to Career

Since Stevenson University’s founding more than 70 years ago, connecting students to their career aspirations has been at the heart of our mission. We offer students numerous opportunities for personal and career exploration. Their professional competencies are further developed by coupling these opportunities with rich experiences and training. Through this framework of career exploration and professional preparation, our students have a competitive edge in the job market today and are prepared for a lifetime of career success. Our multi-year process includes:

Career Exploration

  • Inspiring our students to imagine their futures and plan their own journeys through career advising, coursework, and exercises introduced to all students beginning in the freshman year. 
  • Identifying students’ individual skills, values, strengths, and interests and to help them to discover their best fit with different career options.
  • Guiding students through the steps needed to create their own personal strategic career plans. 

Professional Preparation

  • Developing professional competencies through internships, Professional Minors, service learning, leadership roles, engagement in student organizations, capstone courses and other curricula, and research.
  • Refining students’ skills and professional brand through resume and interview preparation, mock interviews, portfolio preparation, and job search coaching.
  • Connecting students with employers through on-campus recruiting, online job postings, networking support, job fairs and employer panels, and student site visits to regional employers.
