Supporting the careers of our graduate business students and alumni is a high priority for the School of Business, Government, and Economics. These career resources are available:
Graduate students may use the Center for Career & Calling Resources for Current Graduate Students which include online vocational resources and résumé tips, workshops, and events.
Job leads are posted in SPU's job posting board, Handshake, as well as in the SBGE LinkedIn group.
Career Counseling, Job Search Coaching, and Résumé Assistance
Where do you plan to work once you graduate? How do you plan to land your next job? If you just started your graduate business program, you might not know what is on the other side of your degree. A list of qualified, vetted career counselors and coaches is available to students who desire one-on-one assistance (i.e. résumé writing, career exploration counseling or job search coaching, career assessments, or other related activities). This is on a fee-for-service basis.
Professional and Career Development Workshops
Managing your career is critical for success in today’s turbulent environment. To accelerate your development, each quarter we host one career related workshop on topics such as job searching, networking, résumé writing, interviewing, etc. Please sign up by contacting Janine Thorn, professional development program manager, at 206-281-2721 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
