In honor of National Career Development Month, the Career Development Center will present a variety of information and events to help develop career plans. 

November is National Career Development Month, and the Career Development Center at Seminole State College of Florida is hosting several events designed to raise awareness and show the College’s commitment to career development among students and the learning community.

Highlights of the week include a tour of Stetson University, a facility site-visit to First Green Bank and a career networking opportunity hosted by the Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) and intended for students interested in professions from all fields of commercial real estate. There will also be a career fair for emergency medical and fire science students and several workshops, covering topics such as resumes and cover letters, job search strategies and job interviews.

More than 90 percent of students surveyed at Seminole State strongly agree that career programming and events provided by the College help to increase their confidence in their personal ability to make academic and career decisions, according to an annual survey of programming by the Career Development Center.
