Career Services

Career Planning — From a Different Perspective

At SEU, we help students learn how to discer God’s call for their lives.

By viewing your career as an overflow of your calling, which is about your relationship with God and His plan for your life, you can be more confident in the path you choose. We’re here to help you make that happen.

The Career Services team includes career liaisons and student leaders who will assist you throughout your college career years. They are also available as a resource long after graduation.

Career Services can help you:

  • Explore which major or career field is right for you
  • Write an effective resumé
  • Develop interviewing & networking skills
  • Gain employable “soft” skills
  • Find internships
  • Connect with job shadow opportunities
  • Get your first job after graduation
  • Discover career options you may not have considered

My Major, My Job

SEU’s My Major, My Job dashboard tells the collective story of over 5,000 students who graduated from SEU between 2008 and 2018. It includes where they started, where they are now, and if they continued their education.

Student Services

Here are just a few ways Career Services helps our students and graduates find both jobs and personal fulfillment in their careers. Contact Career Services to start your internship or job search.

Mock Interviews

Practicing interviewing skills prior to going on one cannot only help students get a job, but also increase their confidence in their abilities to present themselves well, and discern whether a potential employer is a good fit for their personal goals.

Professionalism Education

Career Services hosts presentations on professionalism regularly so that students always put their best foot forward. Students are educated on the skills and posture needed to successfully enter their career fields.

Resume Workshops

Whether it’s from volunteering, mission trips, study abroad, internships or work experience, many things students do prior to graduation will help them in the future. Career Services helps students see how the skills developed from these opportunities can either translate into a career, or help them in their field. Knowing both will help determine if, and how, that experience should be listed on a resume.

VIP Days

Employers, pastors, and human resources representatives come to campus to recruit students who are looking for internships, part-time work while still in school, or full-time careers after graduation.

Engage Church Expo

Every fall, we host a Church Expo event on campus to connect students with local churches and ministries. This is not only a great opportunity to connect students to community and ministry, but also to promote job and internship opportunities.

Handshake

Handshake is a national job network specifically for college students and recent alumni.
Through Handshake, students and alumni can directly seek internships and job postings. Employers connect with us through Handshake to post jobs, internships, and interviews. Employers can also search for and connect with our students and alumni. Please contact the Career Services office at compass@seu.edu or 863.667.5157 for more information.

Career Exploration

We help students explore career choices through conversations and identifying available resources and tools. Students are equipped with potential action steps to help them discern their educational and professional choices.

Practical Skills

The Career Services team provides practical tools and resources that help students and graduates to live out their gifts and abilities. One of the biggest ways Career Services does this is by helping students recognize and grow their transferable skills, since many employers aren’t as focused on grades and majors as they are on real-life experience.

Career Liaisons

Career Services has career liaisons dedicated to each of the colleges within SEU, who are not only familiar with the majors available in each, but what alumni are now doing with those degrees.

Career Week

Each spring, Career Services hosts a weeklong series of events designed to boost a student’s knowledge of the working world and how to get started in it. In addition to VIP visitors who actively recruit, SEU Alumni offer their insights in a panel discussion, guest speakers present on a variety of topics relevant to today’s workplace, and both in-person and virtual career fairs are held on campus.

Digital Badging

Career Readiness Badging is a collaborative, university-wide program that is designed to aid students in gaining — and communicating their experience with — the skills needed to drive their careers. Students will be able to obtain competency-based micro-credentials within 10 major competency categories. These categories are recognized by employers, churches, and organizations across the country. The program is designed to help students articulate the skills and knowledge that they are already developing in SEU’s curriculum (through academic programs and courses), co-curriculum (via student leadership and activities), and in extracurricular experiences (such as jobs, missions, athletics, internships, etc.). Throughout the badging program, students will also cultivate the development of new skills and knowledge and gain mastery they have not previously been able to demonstrate.

Handshake

Handshake is a national job network specifically for college students and recent alumni. Through Handshake, students and alumni can directly seek internships and job postings. Employers connect with us through Handshake to post jobs, internships, and interviews. Employers can also search for and connect with our students and alumni.
