Did you know that at Seattle University your professional development starts from day one? Your work in the classroom, your involvement in athletics, clubs and activities, and your service to the community all demonstrate the potential value you bring to an organization. Your challenge is to draw from your diverse experiences in a meaningful way, and communicate that to potential employers.
The Career Engagement Office helps students uncover their personal profile with a variety of tools and discussion. By examining your experience, you begin to identify what you have to offer to an organization, where you want to work, and what you want to do.
Career development can seem daunting and overwhelming. We take this complex process and break it down into smaller, manageable steps. At the most basic level, you are collecting information to make decisions.
The basic skills you need to navigate the career development process are self-awareness, research, and effective goal setting for discerning a good fit among your values, interests, personality, skills and professional opportunities.
