Employment Search & Resources

Finding a job is a full-time job in itself. Establishing employment contacts, sending resumes, filling out applications, participating in interviews and doing all the proper follow-up activities can be daunting. At any one time around 70% of the positions available are not advertised. Understanding the importance of the hiring process, the need for excellent communication skills and promoting your skills and services as an asset to the company are essential. Completing your degree is just the first step in the process of finding employment in your field and starting your career.

The CATS centers with our resources can help you with: 

    -Developing a resume, cover letter and follow-up correspondence 
    -Completing good applications 
    -Understanding what an employers wants from new employees 
    -Preparing for an interview 
    -Searching for available positions in the region

Therefore, make an appointment to speak with a counselor for assistance in your job search. By working together, the transition into the workforce should be simple and painless.

In addition, Southeast will also post any vacancies of which we are aware on the campuses and here. Employers are encouraged to contact us anytime they are looking for excellent candidates from our students and graduates.
