The Career Architecture Process
As a result of Stevenson’s formal strategic planning process, the president, administration, and faculty of Stevenson developed and introduced the concept of Career ArchitectureSM to the campus.
Career ArchitectureSM helps prepare students for the real world from day one. Whether students are deciding upon or anticipating a specific major, Stevenson University offers a distinctive approach to explore new paths, change destinations, and map their own vision for the future. With the support of our career experts and committed faculty, the process of Career ArchitectureSM helps students develop a personalized strategic plan based on motivated strengths, interests, values, and individual goals.
At SU, we strive to inspire our students through exposure to a wealth of experiences, professionals, and real-world scenarios. This invaluable framework, plus timely tools and coaching, empowers Stevenson students to imagine their future and design their careers with a competitive advantage achieved by graduation. The process is a personal exploration for students to help them design their career paths beyond their first job. Through theory, practice, and mentoring, students acquire a strategy for lifelong career management and learning that contributes to future success.
Career ArchitectureSM is comprised of three elements that are introduced at various stages during students’ university years. The three elements of Career ArchitectureSM are:
Stevenson’s faculty, the Career Services staff, and administrators all work with members of area businesses and organizations to identify career exploration and preparation opportunities for Stevenson students from the day they arrive on campus. Some of the activities available to students include distinct freshmen seminars, targeted career symposia and seminars, career fairs and networking events, in-class seminars, on-campus interviews, employer information sessions, and networking and etiquette dinners.
