Helping Students Find Jobs and Internships
Our primary career management system, Handshake, allows students to search for and apply for jobs and internships, post multiple resumes and cover letters, maintain an online personal calendar for career events...and much more! Select NJ, then Stockton University, and continue from there. Also, check out our page on Job & Internship Searching.
Career Education & Development Employer-in-Residence program provides employers who visit Stockton University the opportunity to share expert knowledge about careers in their industries; prepare students for the networking and job search process through one-on-one and group interactions; offer career advice to students seeking career direction; and build relationships with constituents in the campus community. Past Employers-in-Residence have included Target, Enterprise, CDW, FBI, Vanguard, and Verizon Wireless. For more information click here.
Sometimes your preceptee may ask, "What are my career options within a given major?" Let them know that in addition to your assistance they can talk to a career advisor in Career Education & Development. More specifically preceptees sometimes ask you "What can I do with a Major in __________?" For beginning answers to that question, use the "What Can I Do With This Major?" tool. You can also click here to see all of our student resources, including this handout which focuses on what students should do each year of college in order to stay on track with their career development.
Students may come to Career Education & Development and get editing assistance in writing personal statements for admissions, discuss the timeline and strategy for the application process or access our extensive collection of reference books. Additionally, students can tap into our collection of web links that include resources to search for graduate programs and information and prep tools for graduate tests.
