Employer Services

Job Opportunities Benefiting Southern students is SCSU's portal to NACElink.  NACElink is a robust online job search database, powered by the DirectEmployers Association and Simplicity. Here you can connect directly to students and alumni to fill positions with qualified candidates.  Employers already a part of NACElink can utilize the multi-school posting system. 

Cooperative Education
We connect employers and students through our Cooperative Education Program. Our Co-op employers have found the program to be an invaluable recruiting tool in attracting talented soon-to-be college graduates. Our Co-op students have worked for IBM, ESPN, Social Security Administration and United Technologies, among many others. 

On-Campus Interview Program
Finding the right candidate is an important part of any organization's success.  SCSU's on-campus interview program offers employers a convenient and efficient way to interview professionally trained and skilled students right in our office. Recruitment dates are available during both the fall and spring semesters.   

Career & Internship Fair
Employers appreciate the opportunity to meet and interact with qualified students and alumni at our annual Career & Internship Fair.

Information Sessions
Meet potential candidates in the informal setting. Informational Sessions offer a unique opportunity to let students get to know who you are as an employer outside of the sometimes stressful parameters of a job interview. 

Employer Classroom Initiatives
The Center's professional staff often work with representatives from the employment community to present informative workshops. These workshops and presentations are conducted both at the Center for Career Services and in the classroom.

Full Service for Career Advising
Our center helps prepare students to meet the demands of the professional world.  In addition to connecting students with employers we provide opportunities for students to learn how to choose a major and career, how to dress professionally, conduct a job search, and much more.  We do this through our counseling staff, resource library, online resources, and strategic partnerships with both on-campus student organizations and employers.  We encourage you to speak with our staff about what we can do to provide unique learning opportunities for our students that are compatible with your organization's mission and that help you to meet your recruiting goals.
