Career Services Significantly Increased

By Anita DeCianni-Brown and Lindsay Valenti

We’ve been surveying alumni and students recently about their career services needs and we are very pleased to announce some new initiatives in response to what those surveys told us.

The new services are available to both students and alumni, and include an updated website with extensive resources, a new job posting system called Purple Briefcase and a career development coordinator.

The pathway to successful career planning has been outlined on the new career services website. It is designed to help both students and alumni with each step of their personal career planning. The resources on the site are organized into four fundamental skills.

Launched in July, Purple Briefcase is the college’s new job-posting service. In addition to the job-posting feature, the system also offers career-related video tips, forums, InterviewStream and ways to connect and engage interactively.

Watch the interview below with newly appointed career development coordinator and SUNY Empire alum, Anita DeCianni-Brown, '12, '15:

Anita is available for appointments. Students and alumni can contact her for career counseling, resume and cover letter critiquing and job search advice. In addition, she will be doing outreach at our regional locations. She is available for personal appointments and is conducting career-related workshops.

Does your organization have opportunities you want to fill? Alumni and students wishing to post job opportunities and internships within their organizations are encouraged to contact DeCianni-Brown at
