Happy summer! Your dedication to your classwork, campus involvement, internship and work experiences, and long hours have paid off and now you get to enjoy a little relaxation. As you sink into the summer months, we wanted to reach out and let you know Career Services is still here. As you explore internships, co-ops, graduate school, and career possibilities, we are here to help you make sense of it all. We also wanted to let you know of a few events taking place this summer to keep on your radar.
Every summer, Syracuse University’s Alumni Association hosts SUccess in the City networking events, which help current students, recent grads, and alumni to connect. They’re amazing opportunities to meet Syracuse University alumni who are established in their careers and are ready to help you meet your professional goals.
