From online assessments, to career counseling and resume help—there are countless resources that Career Services has to offer.

These services benefit everyone, regardless of major. “You’re going to change jobs at some point. We can help students learn how to manage that process of career planning and job search because you’re going to be doing it your whole life” said Pam Lazio, Career Counselor in Career Services.

Students can schedule individual appointments, visit during walk-ins and attend workshops. It accommodates both students who prefer one-on-one attention and students who enjoy learning with others.

Students looking to narrow down to a specific career or academic program can take the FOCUS2 career assessment online, then go over their results with a career counselor. “Vault” is another resource available on the Career Services website to learn about career options.

Additionally, there is an online career network called “Purple Briefcase.” Employers post job opportunities on the website and students can apply to them instantly. Purple Briefcase is even accessible after graduation.

“Students can come in any time they want… we will help them find their way” said Anne Hughes, Career Counselor in Career Services.

The resource library has a wall lined with computers, friendly career counselors waiting to help, and a bookshelf filled with information to help students find a career path. These various avenues of information are located all in one convenient place.

Students can download mobile friendly ebooks on professions for free, use the printer free of charge (only if career-related, not for homework), and get professional career advice from our career counselors.

Students can drop off resumes at Career Services for critiques, or pull it up on the computers in the resource library.

To contact the Career Services Office, call (585) 292-2248 or visit Building 3, Room 108.
