Welcome to Career Services!

The Office of Career Services' mission is to support both the economic vitality of the region and the professional development of our students and alumni by assisting in matching top-quality students and graduates with local organizations to meet the needs of the community. Career Services at SVSU is dedicated to providing the professional development resources to every student throughout their college career and beyond -- free of charge.
