For many employers, the Office of Career and Professional Development provides a valuable means to help employers cut through the stacks of resumes, and find the perfect person to fill that open position. Our mission is to connect Southern students with their future — to link employers with students, interns, soon-to-be-graduates, and alumni who fit the job description and can contribute to a company's success.

In addition to connecting students with employers we provide opportunities for students to learn how to conduct a job search, develop a strong resume, and much more. We do this through our counseling staff, resource library, online resources, and strategic partnerships with both on-campus student organizations and employer partners. We encourage you to speak with our staff about what we can do to provide unique learning opportunities for our students that are compatible with your organization's mission and that help you to meet your recruiting goals.
