Experiential Learning and Career Services

Career Services provides all students with a variety of career-focused programs, services, and resources. Beginning with the Freshman First-Year Seminar, the Career staff introduces Stevenson's unique Career Architecture process to help students realize their values, skills, interests, and uniqueness. This powerful process continues throughout the students' university years resulting in competent, skilled and prepared graduates ready for the competitive world of work.

The Career Services staff works with students to develop the skills, experiences, and confidence needed for success. Expert career advice and individualized attention help students grow in their career development. Career Services staff can also help students with résumé critiques, job search assistance, mock interviews, career assessment tools, career counseling, and/or graduate/professional school preparation. The Perfect Interview is an online tool that allows students to practice and review as many interviews as they desire. Students can participate in on-campus recruiting by visiting employers, career seminars and workshops presented by business and community leaders, career exploration fairs, networking etiquette meals, and many other events. Career Services maintains a comprehensive 24/7 career website, Mustang Central, which provides information on job and internship opportunities, on-campus recruiting, career planning, job success tips, résumé and interviewing resources, and much more.

Experiential learning is an important part of the career process and includes internships, study abroad, one-credit options, service learning and research. Through experiential learning, students have the opportunity to use the skills and knowledge they have acquired in the classroom and apply them on the job. Experiential learning also enables students to become civically engaged and aware of the real life issues that they will encounter in the world when they graduate. The Experiential Learning and Career Services Office, in collaboration with faculty, support the career development and real life experiences that develop Stevenson University students into prepared and skilled emerging professionals for the working world.
