About the Office

Mission Statement

With a strong commitment to development and individual responsibility, the Office of Career Services is dedicated to assisting students and alumni in cultivating the life-long skills needed to successfully navigate their educational and career journeys.

What We Do

Career Services assists students & alumni with major and career exploration, internship strategizing, career planning, and graduate school preparation. Throughout the academic year, we offer a variety of career workshops and events as well as career fairs designed to connect students with prospective employers. In addition, the office maintains a range of online career resources including REDHAWKjobs.com, Southeast’s online job search service. We believe that career development is a process, and advise students to begin early and take ownership of their career decisions.

What We Don't Do

The role of Career Services is not to act as an employment or placement agency. We provide students with the tools, resources and opportunities to identify part and full-time jobs, internships, and appropriate graduate schools. Ultimately, students are responsible for their placement or outcome.
