New to SU? Get started on your first-year career!

By Shannon Feeney Andre, Employer Relations Coordinator

To the new members of the Orange family, Career Services welcomes you!

We know the term “career” may sound intimidating for some and it may be the last thing on your mind now that you are starting your college experience, but it doesn’t have to be.  Essentially, your career starts now!  The decisions you make, the experiences you gain, and the people you meet during your time here will all impact the next step in your journey after college…and Career Services is here to help!

At Career Services we want to help you early in your career development, and that can start as soon as you want it to.  If you are looking to learn more about yourself and your work style, explore options when choosing your academic major, build your first resume, or start your internship search, we encourage you to come visit us.FYC Final Flyer


We are also hosting the following events to get you started on your first-year career:
True Colors Workshop – Tuesday, Oct. 15 – 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. – 500 Hall of Languages
*RSVP in OrangeLink required; must be present for entire session

  • Why attend?  True Colors offers insight into your communication style. Learning this early on in your career can help you understand the differences between others’ ways of communicating; ultimately leading to more meaningful professional and personal relationships. Great for working in teams, building leadership skills, and identifying preferred work environments.

Major Mixer & Panel Discussion – Wednesday, Oct. 23 – 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. – Career Services, 235 Schine
*RSVP in OrangeLink appreciated as refreshments will be served

  • Why attend?  Making that major decision can be tough. Hear from a panel of upperclassmen about their journey declaring majors, switching majors, picking up duals and minors, and facing pressure.

Resume Review Blitz Week – Monday, Nov. 4 – Friday, Nov. 8 – 12:15 p.m. – 12:45 p.m. – Career Services, 235 Schine
*RSVP required; space is limited per session

  • Why attend?  Not sure on where to get started with your resume? These sessions can help you get the process started and make it easier to edit your resume in the future.

In addition, for the next four Fridays, we invite new students to visit our office (and you’ll receive a flash drive!).
