We provide professional development resources through The Career Center, APPLE Internships, Service Learning, and Multicultural Programs. Our resources are designed to deliver intentional educational resources and events to students, alumnae, faculty and staff.
The Career Center Mission:
To facilitate the process of connecting God-given passion to skills and abilities through Charleston Southern University majors, and help students develop job skills for future employment.
Students can speak with a career professional or receive career counseling online or in person. In our virtual career center, students may conduct a mock interview, conduct a job search for national and international job opportunities, apply for internships and post résumés, cover letters, reference list and graduate school essays for critique.
Student Services sponsors annual events through the Career Center and Multicultural Programs. These include recruiting events, career fairs, career planning classes for class credit, workshops, and spring interview day. We partner with the community in celebration of Martin Luther King Birthday and Black History Month through speaker series, National African American Read-In Day, Kuumba Festival, and student led events. Multiple opportunities for applied learning through internships for class credit, community service, and service learning are available to students.
Our Career Counselors, Program Coordinators, and Student Employees are dedicated to helping students utilize developmental services. We pledge to provide quality customer service, timely and accurate response, a supportive environment, personalized attention, sensitivity, and an appreciation of individual differences.
