SUNO's Suited for Success Career Center
The center will be aligned with the goals and student learning outcomes of the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) and will focus on six strategies:
- Integrating career into the student experience for undergraduate engagement
- Graduate student and alumni engagement
- Strengthening relationships with stakeholders
- Defining and building employability skills
- Provide and expand experimental learning opportunities for students
- Assessment and program evaluation
Our goal is to promote student success and development of communication and soft skills for career readiness by developing a four-year career plan that includes mock interviews, resume writing, character, and fitness, and the development of employment profiles on Linkedin other social media platforms. Students will also gain knowledge of the usage of web-based platforms, including BigInterview, HandShake, and Google Digital Skills, to gain career opportunities and enhance their career readiness.
Students will also participate in workshops and seminars that focus on resume writing, interviewing skills, professional attire for the world of work, time and money management workshops, study skills workshops, life skills, and written and oral communication activities. In addition, students will engage within their discipline-specific courses for internships and job shadowing experiences.
Students will be required to visit the SUNO Suited for Success Career Center at least three times within a semester and must complete at least four modules in BigInterview and attend at least two workshops, seminars, or job fairs each year.
This will allow students to reach the following goals:
- Acquire soft practical skills (resume writing, interview skills, and dress for success/professional attire), including oral and written communication, that enhance employability;
- Will confidently articulate career goals using discipline-specific terminology.
- Will demonstrate appropriate soft skills through informal and formal opportunities in selected courses through presentations and internship evaluations.
