How We Help Students and Alumni

The Career Connections Center strives to make the internship and full-time job search as easy as possible students and alumni. Not only do we bring employers right on campus to recruit you, we can help you be their candidate of choice, or as they say in their industry…a HI-PO (high potential). We help students and alumni stand out with One-on-One, Personalized Career Coaching to assist with…
  • Job search skills – finding internship and full-time, major related job opportunities. We can also help connect students and alumni directly to company representatives.
  • An effective resume that gets noticed and inspires an invitation for an interview, as well as be optimized to comply with applicant tracking systems (ATS).
  • Strong interview skills– it’s always the interview that clinches the offer. Preparation is the key to confidence and success.
  • An attention getting LinkedIn and Handshake Profile– 97% of companies are looking for candidates online and having compelling online profiles can help make a great first impression, and those that are optimized to software algorithms can increase chances of being found and contacted by recruiters.
  • Career Fair preparation and confident networking skills– what to say when first meeting someone who wants to discuss and offer job opportunities.
  • Help managing and evaluating multiple job offers and interviews – as well as salary negotiations to ensure industry standard starting or mid-career offers.
  • Strong graduate school applications – including personal statements and/or statements of research interest/intent.

The Career Connections Center is happy to help current students and recent graduates with their internship or full-time job search, as well as alumni who’ve been away from MSOE for a while and would like to change jobs or their career path.
