Career Guidance and Professional Development

Faculty members in our department assist students with creating and maintaining professional resumes. These faculty members review these resumes and check for errors and suggest improvements. The faculty help students improve job interview skills by visiting with students individually during office hours and by helping them setup a mock interview through SFA's Center for Career and Professional Development. Students are required to meet with a faculty advisor one-on-one at least once each semester to discuss career plans as well as develop a list of courses for the next semester. Students are encouraged required to attend college events that allow them to network with employers such as STEM Connection, CoSM Networking Night, or STEM Career and Internship Expo.

Faculty members bring in guest speakers from industry for our weekly departmental seminars on Thursdays at 4pm in room 103 of the STEM building. Faculty advisors also assist students with applying to graduate schools and Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU).
