Our suggested career development timetable begins with your first year. You
can begin to identify and develop your interest and skills, attend seminars and
workshops, and even begin creating your résumé in your first year.
Can you help
me find a part-time job?
local businesses post positions with the Career Services Center that are a good
fit for a college student's schedule. Local families seeking child care and
tutors for their children also contact us to post opportunities. Check out the College Central site for full-time, part-time, seasonal, and internship positions. For more information on any of these opportunities, contact the Career Center staff.
internships really important?
they are almost essential in a competitive job market. Some majors require that
you do an internship as part of the curriculum. They are important even when
not required, because they show employers that you have taken the initiative to
get some experience and firsthand knowledge in your chosen profession. They
also give you a chance to confirm that you truly enjoy your chosen career. The
Career Services Center staff can help you find a rewarding internship
during office hours. How can you help me?
We have handouts available that can help you write your résumé and cover letters,
polish your interview skills, and strengthen your job search skills. We can also communicate via email to
answer questions, critique résumés, edit letters, and more.
I am an alum
of Saint Joseph's, but I don't live near the campus. How can you help me?

successful are Saint Joseph's graduates?
months after graduation, the Career Services Center staff conducts an annual
post-graduate survey to determine who is employed, where they are employed,
whether or not they are in their desired field, and which students have gone on
to graduate programs.
