Career Development Center
The Career Development Center (CDC) 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 CDC offers student assistance and resources in the following areas:
The supportive CDC staff assists students and alumni with career and professional development activities and individual career counseling at all campus locations. Students have access to career assessments and information about degree programs and career fields. The CDC provides resources including books, reference materials, periodicals, pamphlets and electronic resources to help students research careers, majors and transfer options. Many of these resources are available on the Career Development website.
Handshake - Job Listings
Through Handshake, the CDC also provides job/internship opportunities, career assessments, online mock interview options and career-related information. Job listings come from private employers and local, state and federal government agencies.
Seminole State partners with the business community to offer cooperative (co-op) education and internship opportunities that are designed to integrate formal academic study with practical work experience.
Through co-op/internship experiences, students earn credit(s) toward their degrees or certificates while working full- or part-time in positions related to their academic and career goals. Co-op/intern students are assigned to Seminole State faculty members who help them define goals and develop learning contracts.
Employability Skills Training and Employer Recruiting/Networking Activities
Additionally, the CDC staff provides training on employability skills, such as networking, resumé writing, cover letters and interviewing. These skill sessions are scheduled during the fall and spring academic semesters and are available to student organizations and through classroom presentation by completing an outreach request online.
Employer Recruiting/Networking Activities
The CDC manages on-campus recruiting for employers. To further aid in the transition of Seminole State students into the workforce, the CDC sponsors career fairs, information sessions and programming that attract businesses, public agencies and community organizations.
