Career Services always strives to work together with St. Lawrence faculty and staff to provide the best possible career advising for our students. A number of resources through Career Services could be of help to faculty members as you work with your academic advisees. Please feel free to contact us with questions or point your students toward any of the resources we have available. We also recognize that many faculty members and academic departments have strong alumni networks, and we encourage sharing information regarding internships, jobs, or other networking opportunities between departments and our office. We are always eager to help spread the word about new career opportunities and connections made through academic departments or through other campus connections.
Resources you may want to share with your advisees and students:
Handshake is our new online Career Management Platform. All of our “SLU Connected” opportunities are posted here, as well as all on-campus recruiting events, and other helpful resources. All SLU students have access to Handshake (see link on Career Services website) by using their SLU login credentials.
Individual Appointments with Career Services professional staff as well as our student interns can be made at any time through Handshake. Students of all class years are welcome to make appointments regarding a variety of subjects including resume and cover letter writing, finding internships and job, networking, graduate school applications, interview preparation, and career exploration. Students can also stop by our office in the Sullivan Student Center or call x5906 to get appointment assistance. Drop-ins are also welcome on a first-come-first-served basis.
Presentations and Workshops are available on a wide variety of subjects throughout the academic year. All our events are posted in Handshake and often in SLUwire; upcoming events can also be found on the Career Services website.
Ways to collaborate with Career Services
The Career Services office is always interested in finding new ways to reach students. If your academic department is interested in working together to provide programming or resources that help your students to apply their learning, expand their experience and prepare for meaningful work, we would love to speak with you and find new ways to collaborate.
As mentioned before, we also believe we can gain a great deal from sharing networks and career knowledge with each other. If your department receives information about internships, jobs, fellowships, graduate programs, or other career-related opportunities, we would love to have that information available to share with students as well!
Finally, we share a resource that might help you in your important and often frequent role as references or writers of recommendation letters: an online faculty handbook on writing recommendation letters by Joe Schall, former Giles Writer-in-Residence for the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences at Penn State.
