The Career Center is an essential component of Seminole State's Student Affairs Division and seeks to provide opportunities for students to connect with mentors, professionals, recruiters and the community. The Career Center offers student assistance and resources in the following areas:
The supportive Career Center staff assists students and alumni with career and professional development activities and individual career coaching at all campus locations. Students have access to career assessments and information about degree programs and career fields. The Career Center provides resources to help students research majors, careers, and transfer options. Many of these resources are available on the Career Center website.
Handshake - Job Listings
Through Handshake, the Career Center also provides job/internship opportunities, social networking, and career-related information. Job listings come from private employers, non-profits and local, state and federal government agencies.
Seminole State partners with the business community to offer opportunities that are designed to integrate formal academic study with practical work experience. Through these experiences, students can earn credit(s) toward their degrees or certificates while working full- or part-time in positions related to their academic and career goals. Interns earning a letter grade/college credit are assigned to a Seminole State faculty member who help define goals, develop learning contracts and evaluate outcomes.
Employability Skills and Networking Activities
Additionally, the Career Center staff provides training on employability skills, such as networking, resumé writing, cover letters, and interviewing. These skill sessions are scheduled during the fall, spring, and summer academic semesters and are available to all students, student organizations, and through classroom presentations by completing an email request to the department.
Job Search & Employer Networking Events
To further aid in the transition of Seminole State students into the workforce, the Career Center sponsors career fairs, information sessions and programming that attract businesses, public agencies and community organizations.
