The purpose of the Career Center is to provide services, resources, and educational opportunities that will support students and alumni in their career exploration, planning, and job search efforts. To achieve these goals, the Career Center offers the following services and resources:
Individual assistance in career exploration, career planning, job search skills, (i.e., resumes, cover letters, interviews, negotiating offers), graduate school options, and career transitions is available to all students and alumni.
The Career Center offers the career assessment tools, SkillScan and TypeFocus. These self-assessment resources allow students and alumni to explore career options that relate to their personality, skills, interests, and values.
A wide variety of print, video and web-based career resources are available to students and alumni. In addition, students, faculty, and staff may access many career and job search resources on the Career Center’s page on MyEndicott (alumni and parents can access these materials on the Career Center’s page on Endicott’s website). Resources include interview software that allows users to prepare for and practice interviewing; CandidCareer, a collection of career exploration and advice videos; SALT, an online financial management resource, and a wide variety of useful links and downloadable handouts related to professional skill development.
Full-time, part-time, and seasonal job postings, along with a calendar of career events, including area job and career fairs, are accessible to students and alumni through ECLaunch, our online job board, which is linked to the Career Center page on MyEndicott and on the Endicott website. Internships are also posted here. The site also includes a searchable employer database and the ability to create and upload resumes, cover letters and portfolio materials.
Opportunities to Meet Employers
The Career Center and Internship Office sponsor an Internship and Career Fair each spring. In addition, Endicott is a member of the Massachusetts Educational Recruiting Consortium (MERC), which sponsors an annual Education Job Fair each April, with representatives from school districts from across the United States. Also, there is a Part-Time Job Fair each September for students who wish to find employment off-campus during the school year. The Career Center also coordinates on-campus interviews, employers as guest speakers in classes and student organization meetings, site visits to companies, and employer information tables at various locations across campus.
Opportunities to network with alumni and employers are organized by the Career Center and Alumni Relations Office throughout the year. Examples include career panels, mock interviews, networking receptions, business etiquette dinners, and a career mentoring program.
Professional Skill Development Programs
Workshops offered throughout the school year are designed to provide assistance with writing professional resumes, preparing job search correspondence, effective job search skills, successful interviewing, and applying to graduate school. Information regarding Career Center events may be found on the Career Center pages on Endicott’s website and MyEndicott.
