Welcome to your Career Resources site, provided to all United States University students and alumni at no cost with career information, tips, and tools to guide your career exploration and job search.
USU Career Services can support you with the following:
Managing your career takes time and careful planning, and your plan should include assessments, majors, career information, resume and cover letters, job search, and interviews. Career Management is a fluid experience that presents the opportunity to grow, explore, and ultimately decide on a career path designed specifically for YOU!
Deciding on a career path or changing careers can feel overwhelming. Our Career Staff are professionally trained to guide you through this process with sensitivity, understanding, and support. Feeling indecisive, even though it feels scary, aligns with the theory used by our career staff: Krumboltz’s Planned Happenstance Theory.
Managing this process in a flexible and open-minded way is more necessary than ever with our quickly changing labor market.
Positive perspectives in utilizing this theory include:
Resumes: Your resume is a marketing tool written to tell potential employers about your skills, education, and work experience. In this section, you will learn how to create a resume to attract recruiters and hiring managers based on your field of study.
Cover Letters: Cover letters are another marketing tool that provides employers with further information regarding your interest in the position and space for you to personalize your application further.
Career Assessments can help you identify and explore your unique talents, skills, interests, values, personality, and abilities. These tools, when combined, can give you clarity on a career destination or pathway. The following Career Assessments are offered at no additional cost to all USU students and alumni:
All students and alumni should schedule an appointment with Career Services to evaluate which assessment(s) would best suit your needs and obtain access at no cost.
Your interviewing skills are a crucial part of the hiring process. Identifying interviewing strategies specific to your skills, personality, and career goals will allow you to take a more active role in interviews and increase confidence.
Networking: Did you know, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 70% of jobs are found through networking? Networking is the process of making connections and building relationships. These connections can provide you with advice and contacts, which can help you make informed career decisions.
