Career Education and Development

NEW for 2018-2019 Academic Year

Looking for information about your career path?  Not sure what a Forensic DNA Investigator does or what they might have majored in while in college? How about how to become a Genetic Counselor? What does a Project Manager do on a daily basis?  For these careers and dozens of others, check out Candid Career and explore the world of work in a fresh new way!  

BIG INTERVIEW (SRU's Code: 0669)
Need help nailing that first professional interview? Not sure how to negotiate your salary and benefits. Your dream company just called and said they can interview you tomorrow for that summer internship! All of these are great problems to have and we are happy to help! Big Interview is a new system that allows you to research interview questions, record an interview, and then watch your own answers. This allows you to not only prepare your thoughts for an interview but also improve your ability to effectively communicate your knowledge, skills, and abilities (in layman's terms: ace that interview)!
