Career Advising

Meet with someone in the Career Services Center to gain knowledge and confidence in preparing for a career.  


Resume / Cover Letter Critiques

Often resumes and cover letters are a first impression. Their purpose is to help the candidate land an interview and to introduce the candidate to the company. These items must spark interest in and stand out so as to differentiate one resume and cover letter from the competition.


Mock Interviews / Interview Stream

These tools help students to practice interviewing skills before an interview and hopefully enhance their responses and anticipation of interview questions.  Personal, telephone and online interviews are covered.  This will also help students to convey or sell to the employer why the student should be hired.



Etiquette is an essential part of professional success.  Dining and professional communication etiquette are skills taught by the Career Services Center.



It is often said that it is not what you know but who you know that gets you the job.  The Career Services Center gives students the opportunity to network at several events that include:  Lunch & Learn Series, Career Fairs, Information Sessions and Campus Visits from companies, and various Field Trips.


Career Fairs

These networking events feature employers on the Shelton State Community College campus.  Career Fairs introduce job seekers to employers.
