The Center for Career Excellence empowers students and young alumni to articulate the value of their St. Lawrence education to navigate success in a diverse world through meaningful experiences and connections.
Tools for Students
The Center for Career Excellence offers students a variety of tools that can help define their career path, develop competencies that employers are looking for, craft a resume and hone their interviewing skills.
Handshake is the Center for Career Excellence's primary career management platform.
Every St. Lawrence student has access to Handshake. Once on the platform, students will be able to:
- Make appointments with our career counselors
- Sign up for events, workshops, career fairs and interview days
- Create an online profile that will allow employers to reach out with internship and job opportunities
- Search through thousands of internship and job opportunities
- Find SLU-connected employers
- Access online career resources like Vault, CareerShift, and many more
Students can develop resumes from scratch in VMock, or improve their resumes by uploading a PDF version of their current document. The software provides feedback so students can fine-tune their resumes from top to bottom.
St. Lawrence students also have the option of practicing for interviews with VMock's Elevator Pitch platform.
Networking and Mentoring
Mentoring and networking opportunities offer students the opportunity to learn more about potential career options and connect with Laurentians who may be able to help them on their career path.
Internships and Experiential Opportunities
The Center for Career Excellence has numerous programs and resources for students interested in pursuing internships and experiential learning opportunities.
