Co-Curricular Initiatives: Career Center
The Career Center’s mission statement declares that we work to “empower students to discover their unique calling and to engage in lifelong career management.” This is goal that is foundational both to student success and the value of a Seton Hall education. In order to measure our progress towards this goal, the staff of the Career Center engages in ongoing program assessment to document results and drive program improvement. Among the assessment projects that the Career Center has completed:
- The annual Survey of Baccalaureate Graduates documents employment and graduate school outcomes, as well as utilization of and satisfaction with Career Center services.
- Internship Employer Evaluations are completed by supervisors at internship sites. They provide valuable feedback to our students and help the Career Center to better prepare students for success in the job market. To further the learning component of an internship, students are asked
to reflect on their work experiences. Questions are designed to
encourage them to consider what they learned about challenges and
professional ethics, and how the experience might influence their career
plans. They are also asked to evaluate the quality of the work
environment and the internship itself.
- The Career Center also solicits feedback from employers who participate in the various recruitment opportunities that are available on campus. This data monitors satisfaction both with the services that we provide, and with our students’ level of professionalism.
