Engineering Career Center: Creating Connections
The Engineering Career Center at the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering provides comprehensive services for students, alumni and industry. The Center combines both in-person and online resources that provide career coaching and serve as a single point of contact to connect industry recruiters and job seekers.
“The Center is not just for graduating seniors,” says Robin Hammond, director, Engineering Career Center. “We offer a full spectrum of career planning from advising on degree program choices to job negotiation for new entrants to the job market, as well as resources for alumni who may be well into a career.”
“We also have strong relationships both well-established corporations and leading-edge start-up companies. Our goal is to foster successful matches of talent to enable a strong economic environment,” says Hammond.
Sun Devil CareerLink: connecting top candidates and companies
Sun Devil CareerLink provides students and alumni access to a nationally networked online system to post resumes and search for internships and jobs. The system is also a link to register for career fairs, access a network of career development professionals, research companies and participate in information sessions, and schedule on-campus interviews with prospective employers.
For employers, Sun Devil CareerLink is a convenient portal to post internship and job openings, search resumes and connect with our network of engineering students and alumni.
Internships: building engineers
The engineering internship program is an important part of Fulton Engineering’s commitment to student success. Internships provide technically trained students with valuable real-world industry experience. In turn, employers gain highly skilled, motivated talent to fill short term or seasonal needs. Both the company and the student get to know each other and often interns become employees upon graduation.
Coaching: providing lifelong career skills
Through both scheduled and drop-in advising, engineering students and alumni have access to advice throughout their careers. Online presentation and webinar resources are also available.
The Career Center helps with career path planning, preparation of technical resumes and application letters, career fair strategies, job search techniques and interview skills, and salary negotiation. The center is also a resource for graduate school application reviews.
