Get Career-Ready

  • Meet with Carolyn Rea to discuss what assessment might help you understand what major fits you best and what you can do with it in the future.
  • Take part in our Ram Explorers Program for undecided students or those unsure about their chosen major.
  • Get introduced to the Career Community that best matches your professional interests and major. This will open doors to advisors, faculty, alums, employers, and events that will help you build a top-notch network.
  • Understand your professional value and utilize all the Career Center’s resources to incorporate that value when designing resumes and cover letters, including Quinncia, an AI-powered resume tool for you.
  • Get involved on-campus! Involvement will help you build the competencies employers are looking for.

  • If you haven’t started interacting with a Career Community (or two!) that best matches your professional interests, now is the time to start! Learn about who and what opportunities can help you build a network and find relevant opportunities.
  • Participate in RAMP or Job Shadowing to help you "try on" career options and make connections in your field.
  • Attend Career Events to build your network and learn and make professional connections that may lead to your next opportunity.
  • Be proactive in an internship search - you may have even begun already. Either way, don’t wait! Utilize our internship search resources and your career community to guide your search.
  • Master the art of interviewing. Practice or discuss strategies with an advisor, or schedule a practice interview with Quinncia, an AI-powered bot that will walk you through a video interview.
  • Re-assess your professional value and how it impacts your brand. You have added a lot of skills and experiences to your toolkit while at Suffolk. Meet with an advisor and make sure your brand is current, demonstrates all you have to offer, and is publicized appropriately.

Engage in Meaningful Experiences On Campus

In all that you will do here at Suffolk—from service learning to study abroad—you are building a portfolio of skills, competencies, and knowledge that employers are looking for. Connect with these on-campus offices to gain meaningful experience that will help prepare you for the world of work, while doing something you’re passionate about.  

The journey of career development begins in the classroom and comes alive through these experiences as you progress through your own time here in Boston, around the country, and world.
