Career Development for Students and Alumni

Achieving your professional and career goals is a process. It takes time and planning.

We encourage you to explore the available resources to help you develop your own personal career development plan.

Know Yourself and Your Skills

Gain a better understanding of yourself with assessment tools. They can be useful while developing your degree plan to pinpoint skills and areas of knowledge you can explore through course work, projects and internships/applied learning opportunities.

Get the Experience You Need

Explore fields and careers to see current trends and skill sets needed. Explore internships, applied learning and service learning opportunities to gain valuable experience in your field.

Put Your Best Self Forward

Take the time to present yourself for each individual job opportunity you apply to by highlighting your experiences and skills.

Find a Job

Are you preparing for a job search? SUNY Empire State College offers several resources to assist you in your search.  And, beginning in July 2015, we will add Purple Briefcase, a Web-based job database for our students and alumni.
